SLAVERY
An Elegiac Poem on the Inhumanity and Injustice of the Slave Trade by James Pasley, Carlisle: printed by L.Smith, 1792 [J589]
09.02.1792 William Paley, Archdacon of Carlisle, spoke at a meeting in the city to consider a petition to Parliament for the Abolition of the Slave Trade. In his Moral and Political Pholosophy he wrote forcibly against the evils of the trade and as Thomas Clarkson said might therefore he considered ‘as having been a considerable coadjutor in interesting the mind of the public in favour of the oppressed Africans’. Paley also wrote a small pamphlet ‘A little treatise called Arguments against the unjust Pretentions of Slave Dealers and Holders to be indemnified by pecuniry Allowances at the public Expense in case the Slave Trade be abolished’

STANWIX ROMAN FORT A fort at Stanwix [usually known as Petriana] was built when the Roman Wall was constructed, [Wall begun 120s AD and still in progress in AD 138 when Hadrian died] ; the fort in Carlisle, at the confluence of the rivers Caldew and Eden, continued to exist [ M.McCarthy Carlisle history and guide p13]; the present day St Michael’s Church and Kells Place both lay within the boundaries of Stanwix fort; the fate of the Stanwix fort is unknown, however, given the history of other Hadrian’s Wall forts, it would be surprising if Stanwix did not continue to be occupied in some form into the latter half of the fourth century [p27]; the fort was the largest on the Wall and housed a garrison of 1,000 cavalry; slight remains of the northside wall of the fort can be seen in the carpark of the Cumbria Park Hotel

STATE MANAGEMENT 19 Castle Street The bill to set up The Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) received the Royal Assent on 19.05.1915; on July 26th 1915 the Board’s first Order came into operation, restricting the sale on drink in the cross-channel port of Newhaven, from where munitions were constantly sent to France; in the autumn of 1915 it was decided to build the largest of the new munitions factories at Gretna; the first navvies arrived in Autumn 1915 and by June 1916 the number of navvies engaged upon the work was more than 10,000; on 22.11.1915 there was issued a drink restriction order applying to Carlisle amongst other border areas; the seriousness of the drink problem in Calisle caused the Board to purchase all licensed premises including 4 breweries [ excluding certain hotels and licensed restaurants] between July and the end of 1916; The Board’s business was to acquire efficiency - ‘where .....it is expedient for the purpose of the successful prosecution of the present war that the sale and supply of intoxicating liquor in any area should be controlled by the state’; Harry Redfern was appointed as chief architect to the Central Control Board with George Walton as his assistant C.F.A. Vosey designed the Board’s badge [see title page of Olive Seabury The Carlisle State Management Scheme, 2007]; In 1938 the scheme was described as thus ‘the object of the undertaking is to carry on the licensed business in this area in the most efficient manner , to supply the reasonable demands of the public under improved conditions, and to take all possible steps to eliminate excess. To this end a large number of redundant houses have been closed; all incentives to excessive drinking have been removed; food has been provided at licensed premises, with rooms set apart for such purpose; all houses have been placed under disinterested management ; many houses have been reconstructed and others have been improved. The results are seen in the increased sobriety in the city and the improved appearance of the streets’ [Kellyls 1938 Cumberland Directory p71]Licensing (Abolition of State Management) Act 1971, dated 27.07.1971; ENS 11.10.1972 p11 reported that the Woolpack was the first pub to be sold off; majority of premises for sale by tender, closing date 13.11.1972
