London Road NER Goods Station - Carlisle - List Entry

  • Description

    Railway goods sheds and office building, 1881, to the designs of William Bell, NER architect. The 1881 Carlisle North East Railway goods station at London Road is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons: * Architecture: a good quality design that expresses its function well, employing well-finished red brick and overall high quality detailing to both elements of the complex; * Intactness: taken together, the buildings represent a complete example of a goods station comprising both a goods office and goods shed; * Rarity: an increasingly rare survival of a large, urban goods station, whose interest is enhanced by the survival of a two-storey attached office building; * Group value: the goods station benefits from a spatial group value with the adjacent (but earlier) Grade II listed Station Hotel and although not contemporary, the pair share a functional group value as C19 railway buildings....
