Gaol wall, west of Crown Court
County Gaol wall. 1824-7 by Christopher Hodgson. High snecked
red sandstone wall without plinth, with rounded coping.
Extends from the Crown Court down Court Square Brow, along
Borough Street and up Bush Brow, enclosing the former gaol
yard. Nearest the Crown Court the wall stands to its full
original height of almost 10 metres, with the blocked archway
into the former stone yard. Along Borough Street and Bush Brow
its height has been reduced. The squared gate piers on Bush
Brow are not 1820s but are included for group value.
Christopher Hodgson's original drawings for the gaol and this
wall, dated 1824, are in Carlisle Library. For a further
section of this wall, see Hospital Wing of County Gaol and
Gaol Wall, English Street (qv).
