DescriptionThe original West gate in Carlisle's City Wall, in 1835. The walls of the citidel were erected during the reign of Henry VIII, and repaired by Elizabeth 1st. They kept the city safe during the English Civil War, but were in such a ruinous state that they formed no barrier in the Jacobite Rising of 1745. They were pulled down in the 1850's as Carlisle modernized.
