Listing Text


671-1/10/28 Former Priory wall and Deanery
garden wall


Priory wall for the Priory of St Mary, Carlisle, now forming
part of the Deanery garden wall. C12 or C13 with extensive
later repairs and rebuilding. Oldest parts of squared red
sandstone blocks without plinth; Victorian repairs are of
brick; partly coped. Wall parallel with the West City Walls,
adjoins the NW end of the Deanery; part is medieval with a
blocked rounded arch doorway. Turns as a higher brick wall at
right angles along Dean Tait's Lane, to link with the Abbey
Gate. The lane was widened in 1851 which perhaps dates the
brick wall.
