GALLOWS HILL So named Gallowhill in 1608; 1610; so called on the Survey of the Soccage lands of Carlisle, [original in Howard of Naworth Archive, Durham Univerity, ref C49/1. See Northern History Vol XX, 1984] Chronicle of Lanercost shows that already in the 14th century it was a place of execution; Gallows Hill is today wrongly identified at Harraby Hill but Harraby Hill was on the south side of the river [CWAAS OS Vol 12 p365] - Denis Perriam does not agree with this statement; road over Gallows Hill lowered sometime at the beginning of the 19th century and in 1829 Harraby Bridge was rebuilt and in connection with this a deep cutting through Gallows Hill [CWAAS OS Vol 12 p366]

GARLANDS HOSPITAL An 1845 Act of Parliament required all counties to provide a lunatic asylum for the pauper insane; opened 18.01.1862 with accommodation for about 200 patients, with 48 single rooms; designed by Washington and Cory. The asylum faced south west and consisted of a central block which housed on the ground floor the dining room and kitchens; above, in the front of the building, was the chapel and on each side apartments for the servants. In a separate block to the rear were the medical officer’s apartments. Extending from either side were three-storey male and female wards, the upper floors being used exclusively as dormitories. To the north-east and north-west respectively were two separate blocks containing the workshops and the laundry and wash houses, each of which blocks had sleeping accommodation for 16 people. Male and female airing courts were laid out on either side, facing south. The asylum was built in local red sandstone, and the appearance of the older buildings is relieved by alternating layers of black and white bricks; chapel opened 05.08.1875; the first medical superintendent was Dr Kirkman who stayed for barely a year; the man who really shaped the policy of the hospital was Dr T.S.Clouston [ 1863-1873], a national figure in psychiatry, who was medical superintendent for ten years; he was followed by Dr J.A.Campbell until 1897; extensions to the hospital were made in 1866, 1868, 1882, 1883 and 1906, in which year two male and two female ward were added. Throughout the 19th century 50 - 60% of the male population were regularly employed. Most of the male patients worked on the land, either on the farm or laying out the grounds. In this period many of the inmates were from the agricultural classes. Women were employed in the domestic work of the asylum. In 1863 three-quarters of the women were either domestic servants or the wives of labourers and many had been immates of the workhouse prior to admission. . In the 1860s the women made all the clothes, knitted all the stockings, worked in the kitchen and did all the laundry. Private patients were admitted to the Garlands although only usually when space permitted. There was one private patient in 1869 who was charged 14s a week. The next year saw 16 private patients as well as 33 out of county patients who were chargeable to their counties at the private patient rate. Doctor Coulson, remarked that in fact that private patients had less chance of recovery than the paupers, as their relatives tended to keep them untreated at home for too long because of the fear that a future career might be ruined if it was known they had been in an asylum. In 1868 there were 57 patients under medication of which 29 were male epileptics, and in 1885 there were 78 papients under medication for epilepsy. The most common illnesses from which the patients suffered were idiopathic insanity, which has been taken to mean schizophrenia, a word not coined until 1911. Other causes were epilepsy, senile dementia, puerperal and climacteric insanity, general paralytic insanity and phthsis, which can be another name for consumption. In 1871 among among other assigned causes for insanity were; disappointment in love, unfotunate marriage, losses and disappointments in business and monotony of life in a lightship. The first case of suicide in the Garlands was in 1876 when a woman patient, who had been in the Garlands for nine years cut her throat with a pair of blunt scissors; 04.07.1948 the Newcastle Regional Hospital Board took over the Garlands Hospital, until then known as the Cumberland and Westmorland Joint Mental Hospital; 21.06.1962 new admission unit and treatment centre, known as ‘the Clinic’, were opened [1962 opening brochure]

GAS First gas works of 1819 on Collier Lane. John Grafton was the Engineer and Mr Cowan Works Superintendent; built at a cost of 10,000 pounds , raised in 25 pound shares held by 160 proprietors; town gas introduced for lighting shops and some streets on Saturday, 5th February 1820. This was celebrated on 8th February, 1820 at the Kings Arms with a dinner for 50 shareholders, the dining room being beautifully illuminated with gas from two patent lamps; coal for the retorts had to be brought from Lord Carlisle’s mines at Midgeholme, some 15 miles away by horse and cart. The first gas mains laid in Carlisle were English Street, Scotch St., Rickergate, Botchergate, Fisher St, Castle St, Finkle St, Annetwell St, Abbey St, Paternoster Row and also from the foot of Browns Row to the cotton Mills of Slater and Co and Cowan Heysham and Co. Nelson Bridge [Borough Mill Field] site built 1846-47, as their site on Collier Lane was required by the new Lancaster and Carlisle Railway; 10.10.1850 Gas Works transferred to Carlisle Corporation; 1867 chair made for the Chairman of the Gas Committee from the oak roof timbers removed from the Town Hall following a fire; by 1870 the number of consumers had risen to 4,790 and the number of lamps to 720. By 1890 further growth had taken place, the number of public lamps was 1220 and the number of consumers 6001; large extensions to the works were made and a new site of some 6 acres at Bousted Grassing chosen for future extension; By products of the works were now sulphate of ammonia which was sold and sulphuric acid produced from calcined spent oxide of iron. Mortar produced from waste bricks, ashes and lime was sold to builders. At this time the gas works employed about 200 people at its busiest; 18th August 1879 no 4 gas holder at Boustead Grassing completed and commissioned and this holder was enlarged and recommissioned on 2nd November 1892. [This was the gas holder Northern Gas had proposed to demolish circa 1988 but a preservation order was placed on it] 1919 it was finally decided to build new works at Rome Street; 06.10.1922 official inauguration of new works at Boustead Grassing. The railway sidings were connected to the Maryport and Carlisle Railway. The sidings were such as to allow hopper bottom waggons to deliver coal from West Cumberland and Northumberland. Nationalization took place in 1949 and conversion to natural gas in 1969-70

‘The city was entered by three gates called respectively from their aspect, the English, the Scotch and the Irish gates. These possessed no architectural beauties; they all had semi-circular headed arches, with plain mouldings, and were defended by double iron-studded doors of great strength, which, until the end of the last century, were closed every evening at dusk, a gun being fired by way of warning at the appointed hour, after which no one was allowed to enter or leave the city; guards were mounded and all the parade of military discipline maintained’ Jefferson, History of Carlisle, 1838
