The Caledonian, Botchergate, Carlisle

The Caledonian is a public house on Botchergate, at the junction with Mary Street, in Carlisle. The first reference to this pub is found in 1852 when it was called the Lancaster & Caledonian Hotel. It was named after the Caledonian Railway, which opened a line from Carlisle to Scotland in 1847; the pub was reputedly popular with railwaymen. It was acquired by the State Management Scheme in August 1916 and sold to Whitbread in 1973. For a time the pub was called Bar Code. The building is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England. The upper floor, is in separate ownership and forms part of the County Hotel.[1]
