Carlisle Castle, Cumbria / Songs of England
DescriptionIn this new series in collaboration with The Nest Collective, we explore the stories behind traditional English folk songs that have connections to historic places. Situated just ten miles from the Anglo-Scottish border, Carlisle Castle has changed hands many times and boasts the title of England's most besieged castle. Paired with this witness to 900 years of Carlisle's tumultuous history is a song that carries the city's name. The Lady of Carlisle tells the tale of a woman courted by two men, who tests her suitors with a dangerous trial of courage in a den of beasts.
