Views Of Carlisle From the Castle Keep
Completing the circuit, the cathedral now holds centre-stage. In the old days, this view would have encompassed almost all of the walled city of Carlisle. The prominent object on the horizon half way between the cathedral and the left-hand edge is a modern steel tower, bristling with microwave links and antennae. Barely visible just to the left of the cathedral, on the horizon, is Barrock Fell, about half-way to Penrith.
Walk round the castle keep, admiring the view, again.
