The Apple Tree - January 2017

  • Description

    "Constructed on the site of a Victorian drinking shop, The Apple Tree was designed by Harry Redfern, built by John Laing & Son (with joinery by J H Reid of Carlisle) and opened in May 1927. One of the finest of the State Management built pubs, it contained living quarters for the manager, a kitchen and a "mixed 1st class room" where couples could congregate. Sold to John Smiths Brewery in May 1973, it was briefly "The Pippin", but has now reverted to its original name. Still trading - and currently decorated for the "Six Nations" rugby tournament. Photograph is for record only - I have no connection with this business and cannot advise on its products or services." Photo by The Carlisle Kid, 2017.
