CARLTON GARDENS, Stanwix. Land owned by the Duke of Devonshire and developed by his gardner Joseph Paxton; gates originally stood across the entrance to Cavendish Terrace. The Devonshire private estate ran up Stanwix Bank to Etterby Street, down Etterby Street to Etterby Terrace and back to Cavendish Terrace; street names show the family’s noble connections
There are no houses on Carlton Gardens on the 25 inch OS map surveyed in 1899. The 1902-03 Carlisle Directory lists a Dr Stewart Lockie in Carlton Gardens, but no house numbers are given. In the 1905-06 Directory the houses are numbered 1-11 consecuitvely. In the 1960 Electoral Register the houses are still numbered 1-11. The City Minutes of 21.10.1960 p445 agree to the renumbering of Carlton Gardens, number 10 now being no 20
Joseph Mayson of Carlton Gardens died 16.07.1906 [Stanwix MI 139/1]

39 - 62 J.Goodall The Great Tower of Carlisle Castle
LICKING STONE An Abrahams picture postcard of the inner dungeon says this
alongside the photo ‘This is over 800 years old and is a gruesome chamber. It is pitch dark. The narrow slit pierces a 12 foot wall and supplies the only air. The
‘Weeping Stone’ [arrow] is always moist and is worn 2 inches deep by prisoners
tongues. The doomed were chained by their necks to the left wall and stood on the
ledge, often stepping there from to end their misery’. This is a popular legend perhaps going back into the 19th century and beyond. However in the September
2002 issue of Heriatge Today David Sherlock, Inspector of Ancient Monuments,
says. ‘The Carlisle Castle ‘licking stones’ is just one of a score of legends that have
attached themselves to old buildings over the years. The legend has certainly been there longer than English Heritage and we do not know how or when the legend
originated. We have another ‘licking stone’ - in the dungeon of Dunstanburgh
Castle, Northumberland - not associated with Scottish prisoners. The stone ‘weeps’
because of buried springs and may well have been a source fo water for prisoners,
but their erosion is indeed due to natural weathering of the masoonary’
