Jacobite Carlisle – A Healthy Walk through History –

To mark the anniversary of the entry of Prince Charles Edward Stuart into the border city of Carlisle on November 18th 1745, Michael Nevin is giving a walking tour of Jacobite Carlisle on Friday, November 18th in the morning, commencing at 10:30 AM and finishing at midday, and in the afternoon, commencing at 2 PM and finishing at 3:30 PM; and on Saturday 19th morning, commencing at 10:30 AM and finishing at midday.

All three walks start and end at the main entrance of the Tullie House Museum.

The walks will draw on contemporary eyewitness evidence and records and apply CSI techniques to trace the chronology of the seven-week period of Jacobite occupation of Carlisle between mid-November 1745 and December 31st 1745, when the Jacobite garrison in the Castle finally surrendered.  The story also draws on expert testimony, in the form of discussions earlier this year with Dr Christopher Duffy and his detailed account of the period in his book ‘Fight for a Throne’.
