HISTORY: Nos 14-30 were built first and are shown on Asquiths
Survey of Carlisle, 1853; the rest were added shortly
afterwards. Dean Tait only came to Carlisle in 1850 and it was
then that this new street was named. He left Carlisle to be
Bishop of London in 1856 and went on to become Archbishop of
Canterbury in 1868.
