Carlisle is a city in the country town of Cumbria in the North West of England. It is located at the confluence of the rivers Eden, Caldew and Petteril, 10 miles south of the Scottish border. Carlisle is a 2000-year-old city, and in its early years had the status of a Roman settlement, established to serve the forts on Hadrian’s Wall.
