Built between 1122 - 1200 with later extensive repairing and refacing, the latest work on the West Walls being 1988-89. The walls encompassed the medieval town, joining at the north end with the walls of the Castle; the Wall was surrounded by a deep ditch, access to th gateways being by drawbridge, the outer limits of the citch formed the city boundary; Walls demolished, except for long stretches of West Walls and part of north wall between the Castle and Castleway [opposite the Quaker Meeting House], between 1811 - 1815; in 1803 Dorothy Wordsworth commented ‘Walked upon the city walls, which are broken down in places and crumbling away, and most disgusting from filth; In 1828 the author Walter Scott wrote 'I have not forgiven them for destroying their quiet old walls...'
A number of buildings were constructed against the West Walls and these were demolished in 1988. The walls then needed partial rebuilding. The foundation stones from each of the demolished buildings was incorporated into the wall, namely, 'John Dixon, Mayor, 1840', the date for the West Walls police station, Thomas Milburn, Mayor, 1879' , the date for the police station extension, 'The Fawcett Schools, 1850' , [in Roman numerals] and a stone recording this restoration 'Cyril Webber, Mayor, 1988'; This last stone being unveiled on 21.04.1989. A further plaque is placed beside the West Walls Sallyport gate, which was revealed after the area was landscaped and cleared in 1973; The area within the walls was about 70 acres. Because of the roughly triangular nature of the city there were only East, West and North Walls; entrance into the city was through 3 main gates, Caldew Gate, Ricker Gate and Botchergate Gate; 1597/98 Phillipson’s Tower on city
walls used to house plague victims [ CWAAS 1971, vol 71 p59, and map opp p52]
West Walls about 3,000 feet in length, the East Walls 1,380 feet in length and the
North Walls 2,000 feet [Topping p27];Todays East Tower Street and West Tower Street take their names from the towers on the North Wall. Lowther Street today , from the Citadels to the entrance into the Lanes car park, runs along the line of the East Wall

Established as Carlisle and North of England Trained Nurses’ Home at 18-19 Warwick Square in 1900. By 1927 the home was known as the North of England Nursing Home. The evidence of a birth certificate in 1929 giving this as place of birth suggests it was a maternity home at this time. By 1952 it had become Warwick Square Nursing Home, 19 Warwick Square, and it remained at this address until at least 1955-56

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

A published map of 1815 of Carlisle shows an unnamed road extending from the southern end of the new Eden bridges, built 1812 – 1815, connecting to Finkle Street and so through Annetwell Street, Caldewgate and all points west.

Woods 1821 Map of Carlisle shows this road and names it the ‘New Road’. It was built across Corporation land, hence the later name. The 1821 map marks the land to the north of the New Road’ 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. The 1844 Directory map still calls it The New Road and there are no buildings shown on it except at the elbow with Rickergate. By the time of the 1851 census the New Road has become Corporation Road

Peter Dixon had the Shaddongate Cotton Mill. Dixon expanded his textile works in 1849 and built additional works in the West Tower Street area. New streets were laid out. Warwick Street was laid out in 1855 [Dixon’s had a cotton factory at Warwick on Eden]. His name is remembered in the adjoining Peter Street, first noted on the 1861 census and Dixon Street, first noted in the Carlisle directory of 1858

The buildings on Warwick Street were demolished in 1939 to make way for the new fire and police stations which were opened on 16.08.1940 and 17.04.1941 respectively. On the south side of Warwick Street, opposite the fire station, were built attractive cottages for permanent members of the fire brigade. The main contractor for the two new stations was John Laing. The buildings are faced in Greenlaw stone from Northumberland and the architect was Percy Dalton.

In 1964 some of the houses in this area were declared unfit for human habitation, the Cumberland News of 08.05.1964 saying that inspectors had found some houses in the area were without internal water and inside toilets. There was a public inquiry and the Cumberland News in September 1964 reported that an appeal by property owners against demolition had been rejected by the Ministry of Housing and Local Government and a total of 95 properties on Corporation Road, Dixon St, Dacre St, Solway Terrace and Clifford St were to be demolished

Castleway, part of stage two of the inner ring road, officially opened on 27.03.1974. The construction of the road was over parts of the west end of Corporation Road as well as what was Solway Street, Solway Terrace and Dacre Street. Dixon Street and Clifford although still there in name today lie under Castleway.
