Railway Inn, London Road, Carlisle - September 2016

  • Description

    "Opened in 1837 as the Railway Hotel, it was built to serve the London Road Station of the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway which was just across the road. One of the first pubs acquired by the Government in July 1916 under the "State Management" scheme, it returned to private ownership circa 1973. Closed as a pub since 2005, the Grade II listed red Cumbrian sandstone building has expired planning permission for conversion to retail use on the ground floor and four apartments above. Information on the history of the pub from Gordon Edgar at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/12a_kingmoor_klickr/9759003555 Photograph for record only - I have no connection with any parties involved in the sale of these premises and cannot advise on their products or services."
