Glowering over the city, Carlisle Castle is built on the site of a Roman fort at a crucial location where roads to Scotland and across northern England meet. A military base for some 900 years, it was the last castle to be besieged in England, when the Duke of Cumberland overwhelmed Bonnie Prince Charlie's Jacobite garrison there. This new guidebook contains a beautifully illustrated tour and history, complete with colour photographs, plans, reconstruction drawings and eyewitness accounts.
