Luxury housing on a historic Carlisle site
Racing at Carlisle was first recorded way back in 1559 at Swift (the racing venue prior to that used today) during the second year of Queen Elizabeth I’s reign, when the Carlisle gold bell, donated by Lady Dacre of Naworth was presented for the first time. Before her marriage, Lady Dacre was called Jane Carlisle and lived in a house on Abbey Street, Carlisle which is now the site of Tullie House.
The larger of the two is engraved around the circumference: The sweftes horse thes bell to tak for mi lade Daker sake (The swiftest horse this bell to take for my lady Dacre’s sake). A second, small bell is inscribed 1599 HBMC which is believed to stand for the Mayor of Carlisle at this time, Henry Baines.
