Lost pubs of Rickergate - June 2017 (3)

  • Description

    "As mentioned in: http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/5428321, all the pubs in Rickergate have been demolished over the years with the exception of the former "Malt Shovel". This modern 21st Century extension to Carlisle Magistrates Court (a prime contender in any "ugly building" competition) certainly sits on the site of the "Blue Bell Inn" and may also occupy part of the "Scotch Arms Hotel". Both were acquired by the State Management Scheme in 1916, with the Scotch Arms closed on 23 October 1916 and the Blue Bell closed in April 1917. For a time, the cleared site was occupied by Carlisle's bus station." Photo by The Carlisle Kid, 2017.
