In Pictures: Carlisle Archive Holds Cumbrian Treasures

Posted by admin on Jan 12, 2012

Lady Gillford’s House, a Georgian Grade II*-listed building in Carlisle, has been renovated to provide a new archive centre. The £8.2m project includes the building of a modern extension. The new archive replaces the previous centre at Carlisle Castle.

The documents and artefacts will now be kept in large strongroom vaults, in a number of other temperature-controlled rooms and on more than four miles (6.4km) of shelving. Space has been made available to store the current archive, along with a projected 25 years’ worth of new material.
