Carlisle City Church
Carlisle City Church is Grade II* Listed, built in 1842-3 by John Nichol of Edinburgh and Carlisle.
The Church is located on Lowther street, Carlisle and had for some period of time experienced anti-social behaviour on the open front steps. This was particularly prevalent over weekends with a variety of food waste and other similar debris needing to be removed and the area washed down prior to Sunday worship.
Our clients employed a local Architect, Swarbrick Associates, to design a matching gated railing system to replicate exactly the existing railings and closely based on railings and gates that had been removed in the past. The design received Planning and Listed Building Approval in mid 2016.
A detailed site survey was carried out and a number of original castings were retrieved from site for pattern making purposes. New patterns and castings were produced and then these were fabricated into side panels and handed gate leaves, all to match the original railings precisely.
