Lambert Smith Hampton are collating information in order to advise their client (BRB (Residuary) Ltd) on the suitability of a site for redevelopment on London Road in Carlisle (NGR centred NY 412 555). The site is currently occupied by disused railway sidings and goods station, and it is possible that redevelopment proposals will include demolishing the goods station; however it lies within a sub-area of the Carlisle to Settle Railway Conservation Area, known as London Road Goods Station and Petteril Terrace. Therefore, an understanding of the contribution of the goods station to the Conservation Area is required at this early stage of the proposals. Consequently, Lambert Smith Hampton commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake a heritage assessment. The work was undertaken between December 2008 and January 2009.
The assessment comprised a search of both published and unpublished records held by the Cumbria Historic Environment Record (HER) in Kendal, the Cumbria Record Office in Carlisle, and the archives and library held at OA North, focusing on activity associated with the railway from the nineteenth century onwards. A site visit was also undertaken to provide a more thorough understanding of the remaining goods station structures, in particular the goods shed. A rapid assessment of the architectural significance of the station was also made.
