The Arroyo Arms, Edgehill Road, Carlisle - March 2017 (1)

  • Description

    "Only five pubs were built in Carlisle by the State Management Scheme between 1945 and 1971, all on "greenfield" sites to serve new housing estates. Opened on 23 June 1958, the Arroyo Arms commemorates the battle of Arroyo des Molinos at which the 2nd Battalion of the 34th Infantry Regiment (later the Border Regiment) fought. Originally, the pub sign was a model military drummer, but this has long disappeared was believed lost (although the sole customer on 8 March thought it may be preserved in a local museum). That customer was correct as the sign is in the Museum of Military Life at Carlisle Castle - see: . Sold to the Greenall Whitley Group on 2 April 1973, the pub is still trading. See also: .
