Carlisle 7th September 2020

Carlisle Cathedral

Gail says we have visited this city before but I cannot remember one bit of it. We arrived after a hours drive from Rowrah and parked up for a visit. It’s a lovely old city with a castle and cathedral that we visited inside, the weather was not up much but on a nice day it looks like a great place to visit.
