[Royal Armoured]Militia. All such militia depots formed a part of a camp named after famous generals. The 13th AA was known as ‘Gillman’ camp and the 23rd Searchlight as the ‘Wardrop’ camp; during construction more than 1,400 men were involved in the work; in all there would be 120 huts, constructed on brick foundations, served by two and a half miles of roads and thirteen miles of drains; after the war used for national service training with the Royal Armoured Corps; next it became an Army Apprentice School, the first two hundred Army Apprentices, aged between 15-18, arrived by train at Citadel Station, on 11th January 1960; first Commandant Colonel Gladwin; St Eligius was dedicated as the Anglican church, converted from a gymnasium; St George’s became the home of all Free Church members’; the school became a college in 1966; Last Army apprentice recruits passed out in July 1969; in its nine years of existence 2,378 Apprentices were trained; the final demolition of the buildings took place in January 1971, buildings and fitments were sold, the camp church was given a new lease of life as a garage near Newcastle; in June 1989 a travellers caravan site was developed on the site.

Until the introduction of the power-loom to textile manufacturing in the late 1820s every piece of cloth had been produced on the handloom. In the early part of the nineteenth century, after agricultural workers and domestic servants, the handloom weavers were the third largest occupation in the United Kingdom. The weaving trade had enormously been boosted in the cotton mnufacturing districts of Lancashire, central Scotland, the North East and the Carlisle area by the increasing production of yarn from the spinning mills in the late18th century. The 1790s marked the emergence of Carlisle as an important textile manufacturing centre

George Smith’s 1752 Map of the Soccage Lands of Carlisle calls the area which is today Corporation Road, Warwick Street and Dixon St Battle Holm and Hangmans Close. No houses are marked on Hangmans Close or Battle Holm The name Battle Holm is apparently meant to indicate battle in a judicial sense

Woods 1821 Map of Carlisle marks the land to the north of the New Road’[ which became Corporation Road sometime before 1851] as ‘Properties of the Corporation’; that to the south of the road being owned by the Duke of Devonshire. An area around here is still called ‘Hangmans Close’ on the 1821 map.

HARRABY HILL 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; near the top of Harraby Hill stood the gallows. In 1746 twenty Jacobites were hund here for their part in the ‘45 uprising; spot height about 125 feet
