GV II

Includes: No.1 LOWTHIAN LANE. Includes: No.45 LOWTHER STREET. Terrace of 12 shops with offices and flats above; former pub behind. 1851 with C20 alterations. Flemish bond brickwork with light headers; calciferous sandstone dressings, string courses and bracketed cornice, partly painted. Slate roof (not visible from the ground) with some dormers; C19 and C20 brick ridge chimney stacks. 3 storeys, 31 continuous bays on upper floor with one step in the cornice, but divided into 2-, 3- and 4-bay shops. Ground floor shop fronts are C20, many dating from the 1970s and 80s, but of particular interest are Nos 5-9 (Will Nixon & Sons) and No.11 (John Watt & Son), which retain their early C20 shop features. Nos 43, 45 and 47 also have early C20 shop fronts. Most sash windows above survive with glazing bars, in brick reveals; string course sills; windows on first floor have bracketed hoods. No.51 at the end of the street becomes No.45 Lowther Street on its 3-bay return of similar details. INTERIORS not inspected. At the back of Nos 5-9, and forming an integral part of it, is No.1 Lowthian Lane, the former early C19 Rose and Crown Inn, which closed in 1916. This is lower, 2 storeys, 2 bays with a right door and left shop window; cement rendered. The former brass bar which was attached in front of the window was removed to Carlisle Museum in the early 1980s. INTERIOR not inspected. Bank Street was a newly formed street in 1849 (Carlisle Journal, 21 December 1849). Because of the existence of White Hart Lane to the south, only properties on the north side of Bank Street could be built and the construction of these is referred to in Carlisle Journal, 6 June 1851. (Carlisle Journal: 21 December 1849; Carlisle Journal: 6 June 1851).
