Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Carlisle

Map locator - Carlisle

On our way to Edinburgh ... rather than use the M6 to bypass Carlisle, we took a look at the centre and castle

Carlisle Castle
Carlisle Castle


Carlisle Castle was on the front line of the various wars between Scotland and England in times gone by, and is one of the places that Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned (You can see a picture of her Linlithgow Palace on our Falkirk page)

To defend the castle, Carlisle also boasted a city wall ...

In modern, more peaceful times the train passes just below the city wall on its way from London via Lancaster and Carlisle to Glasgow, and there's also a good service from Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool to Edinburgh

The centre of Carlisle is also worth a look - a great deal of history in a very pleasant setting

Although Carlisle isn't on the border, it's a border city in nature. See the Jedburgh and Newcastle pages for pictures of the border at Carter Bar, and the Dumfries page for pictures just across in Scotland

Just to the south is the Lake District, and to the South East are the Penines- here's a characteristic stone bridge - alas, rather the worse for wear.

In the Lake District itself, don't forget to stop and see Ullswater and the Kirkstonepass.
