CARLISLE

NY3955NE ABBEY STREET 671-1/10/34 (East side) 01/06/49 Wall, gates and railings in front of Tullie House (Formerly Listed as: ABBEY STREET (North side) Stone gate piers & gates & boundary wall at Tullie House)

GV I

Wall, gate piers, gates and railings for garden of Tullie House (qv). Late C17 (could be C19 imitation). Red sandstone ashlar gate piers and wall; cast-iron gates and railings. Off-centre large rectangular rusticated piers on moulded plinths, surmounted by projecting cornice and bracketed ball finials. Flanking low wall on moulded plinth under flat moulded coping. Spear and scrolled railings. Fresh appearance of stone suggests replacement. Celia Fiennes on a visit to Carlisle in 1698 said "one house which was the Chancellors (Thomas Tullie) built of stone very lofty 5 good sarshe (sash) windows in the front and this within a stone wall'd garden well kept and iron gates to discover it to view with stone pillars," see Christopher Morris (ed.) (1947). Brown (1951) says "Tullie House had formerly a high wall in front, which Mr George Dixon pulled down." However a 1791 watercolour of the Abbey gate by Robert Carlyle shows the Tullie House wall in the background and it looks much as it does today. (Morris, Christopher: The Journeys of Celia Fiennes: 1947-: P.202; Brown JW: Round Carlisle Cross: 1951-: P.113).
