The city and county town of Cumbria, Carlisle sits just ten miles south of the Scottish border. The 'great border city' - as it is known - was established by the Romans to support fortifications along Hadrian's Wall. Carlisle Castle has served the city many times as an intrinsic tool of defence, with the city coming under siege a total of ten times throughout its colourful history.
In 1133, Cumbria's priory was elevated to a cathedral, making this the only region with city status in the whole county. Following much expansion of the settlement - and with thanks to its location at the confluence of the rivers Caldew, Eden and Petteril - Cumbria was well-positioned to flourish during the Industrial Revolution. The city thrived and transformed significantly with the growth of the textile industry and the city's population.
