Artist's Description

An English Heritage Grade I Listed Building

Carlisle Market Cross in front of the Old Town Hall, at the Greenmarket, Carlisle, Cumbria, England.

Carlisle Cross, Market Cross, or Carel Cross was erected in 1682 on the site of an older cross. It is said that the lion, holding a copy of the City’s Charter (the dormant book), at the top of the monument faces Scotland but snarls defiantly to the west, below are four sundials. Carlisle held its first official fair, Carel Fair, in 1353.

The cross marks the City Centre, where the Roman Forum stood, a traditional place for public proclamations and meetings. Bonnie Prince Charlie proclaimed his father king here in 1745.

Carlisle Market Cross is an English Heritage Grade I Listed building and scheduled ancient monument, English Heritage List Entry: 1297369.

The Old Town Hall, where you will find the Visitor Centre, replaces the medieval Moot Hall. The central part dates from 1669 and the clock tower surmounts the 1717 extension. This was the meeting place for the city council until the opening of the Civic Centre in 1964 and also served as the courts.

Carlisle Old Town Hall dates from 1717 and it is an English Heritage Grade I Listed building, English Heritage List Entry: 1218104.
