Harraby Inn, London Road, Carlisle

Harraby Pub and Kitchen is located on London Road, by the junction with Harraby Grove, in the Harraby area of Carlisle.  It opened as a public house in 1949, after being acquired by the Carlisle and District State Management Scheme. For many years it was known as the Harraby Inn. One source indicates that this building was originally a house, known as Harraby Grange, for many years the residence of the Cavaghan family, who owned the nearby food factory.[1] However, National Archives online index indicates Harraby Grange as being on Durranhill Road [2] - though road that is to the north-east of, and out of Harraby. Gazetteers note Harraby Grange as once being an independent manor. A mystery to be solved!

"Harraby Grange, containing 174 acres, was formerly an independent manor, known as Henderbye; but it is now included in that of Botchergate, and held under the Ecclesiastical Commissioners by leasehold tenure" (History, Topography & Directory of Cumberland, 1901).
