...
The Cathedral is a noble building, deprived, indeed, of the greatest part of its nave. What remains is of ever-enduring Norman architecture, with low round pillars and circular arches; it is now very neatly fitted up as the parish church of St. Mary. The transepts are narrow, without aisles, and of the same style; from the south end the cloisters originally extended; the north transept is used as the consistory court. The choir is supported on clustered piers, with enriched capitals, from which spring eight pointed arches; above is an elegant triforium of three openings, and a clerestory, which once had a rich parapet, pierced with foliated circles, but wantonly destroyed. The tabernacle work or stalls is of very elegant carved oak, black with age. The pulpit and throne are modern, and not so rich in design. The roof is
Page 104:-
vaulted in stucco, with cross springers. The east window is by far the finest decorated window in the kingdom; it consists of nine lights, and the head is filled with the richest flowing tracery conceivable; it is, however, painful to add,that it is in a state of rapid decay. The north and south aisles of the choir are similar in character, and terminated by windows of two lights. Beneath the sill of the aisle windows a row of beautiful niches is continued all round. In the north aisle Dr. Paley lies buried - a fine mural monument simply recording his name and age. In the choir, Bishops Law and Smith are interred, both eminent in their generation. The prevailing style of the choir is early English, the east end being decorated. The entrance into the Abbey is under an ancient gate-way, having a circular arch, round which is an inscription purporting its having been built by Christopher Slee, Prior. Within the precincts are the deanery and prebendal houses, the fratry, and register office. The deanery contains, in its square tower built by Prior Senhouse, a fine apartment used as a drawing-room, whose ceiling is worthy of inspection: it is of oak, carved in square pannels, the intersecting knots being highly adorned, and the whole painted in different colours, with armorial bearings emblazoned on shields, and mottoes scattered about. The fratry or refectory of the ancient priory is now used as the chapter-room; the south front is lighted by a row of elegantly-proportioned windows of the Tudor style, the op-
Page 105:-
[op]posite wall is ornamented with three niches, whose crocketted canopies are delicately chiselled and supported by slender pillars. In this building is a curious stone chair, having an impanelled foliated ceiling, called the confessional. From the Abbey the Cathedral is seen in the best point of view; a low, square, and embattled tower rises over the intersection of the cross. The east end cannot be viewed but in pieces: its centre is filled by the magnificent window, on each side of which rise buttresses with crocketted pinnacles; the gable is adorned with crosses, and its blank space filled with a right angled spherical window. The design of this front is one of grandeur; the great size of the window, the boldness of the buttresses, and the richness of the crockets, crosses, and finials, unite in rendering it the admiration of all. The north side of the Cathedral forms a fine street-scene, with row of trees around its church-yard wall, which has lately been rebuilt and surmounted by cast-iron rails, the very elegant design for which was handsomely furnished by R. W. Billings, Esq.

"... In the cite be two paroch churches, of which the one is in the body of the cathedral church, in the which be canons regulars else be in no cathedral church in England. ... The body of the cathedral church is of an older building than the choir. ... "
...
... The cathedral begun by Walter, a Norman priest, under William Rufus, governor of the city, who founded a monastery here, which Henry I. endowed for Austin canons, and afterwards made a bishopric (the only one of the order in England), is imperfect, the west part being pulled down by Cromwell 1649, to build batteries and a citadel in the market place, so that it has lost near 100 feet of its whole length, being only 219 feet, and the nave used as a parish church only. Part was built in the Saxon style with round arches and massy pillars 15 feet high, and 17 feet and an half in circumference; the rest is ascribed to Edward III. The steeple and tabernacle work by bishop Strickland. The choir by bishop Welton, finished by his successors Appleby and Strickland. It has handsome stalls, supposed by Robert Eglefield founder of Queen's college, Oxford, and the history of St. Cuthbert and St. Austin painted in compartments with couplets at the west end at the back of the stalls much defaced. Bishop Lyttleton contributed largely to wainscot the choir and the sides of the altar, from a design of his nephew Thomas Pitt, esq; now lord Camelford, who also gave a design for a bishop's throne. The door near the bishop's throne was the work of prior Haythwaite about 1480, and the opposite door of prior Senhouse about 1500. The revenues of the priory were valued at £.418. of the bishopric at £.531. Henry VIII. founded here a dean, four prebendaries, 8 minor canons, a subdean, four singing-men, a grammar-master, six choristers and a master, six almsmen, &c. The cloisters and buildings were destroyed in the civil war, except the refectory, now the chapter house. Here are monuments for bishops Barrow 1429, Bell 1496, Robinson 1616, Milborn 1623, Fleming 1747, and some ascribed to Appleby, Wil-

...
... The see was founded by Henry I. a.r. 23. as the priory by him soon after his accession. Philip and Mary granted to the bishop the advowson and collation of all the four prebends. ... Henry endowed the church with the tithes of all lands broken up for cultivation within Inglewood forest, by giving it an ivory horn. This horn, as it is called, is two teeth of an elephant, now remaining in the cathedral. Bishop Halton petitioned Edward II. for a piece of ground to build an house for himself and successors within the precincts of the castle and within the city walls. ...
Among the 51 bishops of the see, two are particularly intitled to a place in this work for their distinguished application and eminent proficiency in the subjects of it. Bishop Nicolson, son of Joseph Nicolson, rector of Plumland in this county, whose various writings are enumerated in Dr. Burn's History of Cumberland, for which he left such ample materials in three volumes folio, and one in octavo; the former bequeathed by him to the dean and chapter, the latter to his nephew Joseph Nicolson of Hawksdale, esq; Dr. Burn's coadjutor in his publication: Bishop Lyttelton, whose attention to the interests of antiquarian science while he was president of the Society of Antiquities found so faith-

There are but two Parish Churches in this City, St. Mary's and St. Cuthbert's: St. Mary's is the Cathedral, and stands almost in the Middle of it, but is separated from it by a Wall of its own; the eastern Part, which is the newer, is a curious Piece of Workmanship; the Choir, which, with the Isles, is 71 Feet broad, is a fine Piece of Building, the E. Window thereof is 48 Feet in Height, and 30 in Breadth, adorned with Pillars of curious Workmanship; the Roof is elegantly vaulted with Wood, and embellish'd with the Arms of England and France quarter'd, the Piercy's, Lucy's, Warren's, Mowbray's, and many others.

CATHEDRAL CHURCH OF THE HOLY AND UNDIVIDED TRINITY / / / CARLISLE / CARLISLE / CUMBRIA / I / 386592 / NY3990555958
courtesy of English Heritage
Priory Church and Cathedral, now all Cathedral. Early C12 with various rebuildings until the early C15, with 1652 alterations to west end; minor 1764 alterations; 1846 (by Thomas Nelson) and 1853-57 restorations by Ewan Christian; 1950s restoration and vestry etc additions. Oldest parts are of mixed red and calciferous squared sandstone blocks; the remainder is red sandstone ashlar, heavily restored, on chamfered plinth, with stepped buttresses carried up as pinnacles; string courses, dentilled cornices and solid parapets, battlemented on tower. Steeply pitched lead roofs, copper on south transept and flat on tower; coped gables, that at east end with numerous cross finials. Early C12 nave originally 7 bays, now 2 bays with a fragment of the 3rd bay remaining as buttresses, with aisles and north vestry. South transept also C12 with C13 chantry chapel (dedicated to St Catherine); north transept is late C14 incorporating part of C12 structure (original transept thought to have been destroyed when the tower fell in 1380). Tower rebuilt late C14/early C15.
INTERIOR: 7-bay choir is internally C13 but completed in the late C14, the east window is probably c1380. Nave has triforium and clerestory in Norman style with some internal distortion due to subsidence; the west wall is c.1652 with 1870 windows; some of the other windows in the nave are later insertions; north door (now internal) was added in 1813-4 and gives access to the 1956 vestry. Blocked south doorway to cloisters appears to have been C12. South transept of similar Norman details, the south door is 1856 (here originally the dormitory range joined the Cathedral and roof line can be seen externally); chapel has panelled and traceried wooden screens of late C15. North transept has 1858 inserted north window to memory of Dean Tait's children replacing earlier windows of 1764 and c1380; former external window now internal, lit the crossing when the transept had a flat roof (similar windows over nave and south transept were removed in 1855-7 restoration). Choir has C13 arches on clustered columns with elaborately carved capitals representing the 12 seasons. C15 choir stalls with later C15 mural painting on the backs. Barrel-vaulted ceiling is painted with stars on a blue ground and coats-of-arms of local gentry (originally to the design of Owen Jones in 1856 and replacing a similar medieval ceiling covered by a false ceiling in 1764). East window contains medieval glass in tracery head, the lower glass having been removed in 1764, was replaced with the present plain glass in 1862. For fuller details of the interior see Pevsner (1967) and the Pitkin guide to the Cathedral.

RUINS OF DORMITORY OF FORMER PRIORY OF ST MARY / / / CARLISLE / CARLISLE / CUMBRIA / I / 386595 / NY3989155924
courtesy of English Heritage
Dormitory (or dorter) for the Priory of St Mary, now in ruins. Mid or late C13. Large blocks of red sandstone with ashlar dressings. This former 2-storey building extended in a north-south alignment from the south transept of the Cathedral and joined the Fratry at right angles, forming the east range of the Cloisters. The west wall survives in part at ground floor level and has a pointed-arched doorway with trumeau; this gave access through the undercroft as a vestibule for the Chapter House opposite. The east wall has almost entirely gone, only the pointed-arched doorway into the Chapter House survives. Inside the west wall are the springers for the rib vaulting of the undercroft, which continue along the east wall of the Fratry; on the inside of the east wall is a further springer. On the east side of the Chapter House doorway (inside the Chapter House) is the beginning of the ribbed blind arching. Excavations (unpublished) in the 1950s revealed the ground level one metre below the present surface with medieval tiles in place in the Chapter House (now lifted). The slype arches which continued the wall to link with the Cathedral on the north were removed in 1809 as part of the new layout of the Cathedral grounds (see Carlisle Journal, 15 April 1809). For proposals to convert the ruins into the Cathedral Library in 1693, see JH Martindale, CWAAS, Trans.NS, XXIV. An engraving from a drawing by Thomas Hearne shows the ground floor intact in 1777 and a similar drawing viewed from the Cloisters by Robert Carlyle c1791, are in Carlisle Museum. (Cumb. & West. Antiquarian & Archaeological Soc. New Series: Martindale JH: XXIV: Remains of Conventual Buildings, Augustin.Priory, Carlisle: P.1-16).

On pp.17-18 of part 1 of the guide
In the ailes on each side, are some strange legendary paintings of the history of St. Anthony, St. Cutherbt, and St. Augustine: one represents the saint visited by an unclean spirit, who tempts him in a very indecent manner. Above every picture is a distich relative to the subject.
We shall give here the following as a specimen of these very curious compositions.
