Viaduct House Carlisle

Carlisle's Victorian-built Viaduct House, adjacent to the 1876-built Victoria Viaduct, is one of the most prominent buildings in Carlisle, with the solicitors company name Cartmell Sherpherd prominently displayed on the end building. It has formed the backdrop to hundreds of photographs taken over the years from the north end of Carlisle Citadel station. This is the 'tradesman's entrance' at the rear and not normally seen. The goods hoist access doors to the various levels of the warehouse and offices are a remarkable feature still extant, albeit in need of urgent attention to the downpipes to prevent further deterioration of the fabric of this superb red cumbrian sandstone building.
