DIOCESAN CHURCH CENTRE - Carlisle - List Entry

  • Description

    Grammar School, now Church Centre and library. 1832 and 1851 extensions, for the Dean and Chapter of Carlisle Cathedral. Coursed red sandstone ashlar on chamfered plinth. Graduated Welsh slate roof...The Grammar School was of royal foundation and formed part of the Cathedral, hence within the Cathedral grounds, on the site of the former malt kiln of the Priory of St Mary. Became the Choir School of the Cathedral when a new Grammar School was built in 1883. Threatened with demolition in 1977, but converted to its present use shortly afterwards. A plan of 1827 in Cumbria County Record Office shows that the 1806 Grammar School was demolished to make way for the 1832 rebuilding. I
