The Redfern, Etterby


The Redfern is a public house located on Kingmoor Road, in the Etterby area of Carlisle. It was opened on the 1st of October 1940 and was the 16th public house built under the Carlisle and District State Management Scheme. It was planned to increase public house capacity, with the opening of a Royal Air Force Maintenance Unit ('14 MU'), which brought around 3,000 workers into the Carlisle area. The building was designed in an 'Arts & Crafts' style, with a bowling green, expressing the Scheme's ideals of the 'civilised' public house. It was named in honour of Harry Redfern, the Scheme's long-standing architect. Redfern had become ill during the early phase of development and the pub was primarily designed by his assistant, Joseph Sneddon. The pub retains it's wood panelling and much of it's original internal fixtures. The Redfern is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
