Further Information

Built to defend the border between Scotland and England, Carlisle Castle changed hands many times in its history. A motte and bailey castle was constructed in 1093 under William II of England and in 1122 Henry I of England built a stone castle on the site. The walls and stone keep were later completed under David I of Scotland.
