  • Carlisle, Cumbria currently just says: "The walls enclosed the city south of the castle and included three gates to the west, south, and east called the Irish or Caldew Gate, the English or Botcher Gate, and the Scotch Gate respectively. The names of the gates exist in road names in Carlisle today."

Archaeology reports[edit]

  • West Walls archaeology document dates commencement to Henry I in 1122, David I (Scotland) heightening them in 12th century, 13th century accounts of them needing repair, 15th century repairs, 16th century remodelling of castle and English Gate to take over role of "crumbling city walls", collapse/dereliction/demolition by 1815 (north and east walls) - Irish Gate and English Gate demolished 1811 due to traffic. Survival of West Walls as a natural boundary in any case and warehouses etc built against them.

  • Electric Scotland "At the time of Charles Edward's arrival in Cumberland, the fortifications of the City had been neglected for several centuries; but it still bore the outward aspect of former strength. The works, which had thus been left to moulder away, were in the form of a triangle, and were separated from the town by a deep ditch. Upon the east angle, which is also cut off from the Parade by a ditch, is seated the Castle, properly so called, though the whole generally goes by that name. These works consist of a dungeon, the walls of which are twelve feet in thickness; a tower, called the Captain's Tower; two gates, one to each ward; there being an inward and an outward ward. In the castle there is a great chamber, and a hall, but no storehouse for ammunition. In the walls of the town, three gateway towers, a semi-circular bastion called Springeld Tower, and the citadel, complete the fortifications: unless we comprise several square towers with which the city Avails are furished; especially one at the west sallyport, and the Tile Tower, both of considerable strength."

Jockey Club of Kenya[edit]

Originally East African Turf Club of which Hugh Cholmondeley, 3rd Baron Delamere was first president. A.S. Cooper, was the first Honorary Secretary of the newly formed East African Turf Club.[1]

First race under EATC auspices 1904. Renamed 1921. [2]

THIS IS WRONG--> The Jockey Club of Kenya was founded in 1965.[3]

The Jockey Club of Kenya describes itself as "the governing body of thoroughbred racing".[4]

Jockey Club of Kenya operates Ngong Racecourse.[5]

The Nairobi Business Park was first envisaged by the Jockey Club of Kenya. The club owned of 400 acres (1.6 km2) of land by the Ngong Road between Nairobi and Karen. The club decided to diversify their land use by restructuring their land portfolio.

Brian Perry (veterinarian) was until recently Chairman of the Kenya Polo Association and Chief Steward of the Jockey Club of Kenya

Monday 09 March 1903 , Lancashire Evening Post "Civilisation" in Uganda News has just reached London from East Africa of the march of civilisation in what it known, too often mistakenly, as the "Dark Continent." This is the formation at Nairobi, one of the principal stations on the Uganda Railway, and just below the famous Kikuyu escarpment, of an East African Turf Club, under the presidency of Sir Charles Eliot, the British Commissioner. Racing of a promiscuous character has for some time past taken place at Nairobi, but it was felt that the time had arrived when it should be properly organised and placed on a proper footing. The lease the racecourse is granted by Sir Charles Eliot, there is an entrance fee of Rs.15, the annual subscription is, and the rules of the Calcutta Turf Club are to be adapted to the conditions of the country, in view of a further meeting which is to take place on Tuesday next.

Sheffield Daily Telegraph - Monday 09 March 1903 London correspondence Whither the Englishman goes, thither he lugs his customs as well as his baggage. The latest mail to London tells the world at home that at Nairobi, somewhere or other on the Uganda Railway, an East African turf club has been formed by the English residents, and a racecourse leased. When the North Pole is discovered one may expect tho discoverer to send home for straw and sawdust to lay down a racecourse, with the Pole as the finishing post.

SHIRLEY, Oct. 29 The West India Company's Ice House.— The recent carriage of a large quantity of Norwegian block ice from the port of Southampton to the large ice house belonging to the Royal Mail Steampacket Company at Old Shirley has at- tracted some amount of notice to the character and purposes of that newly -constructed building. It may not generally be known that, in additien to the large laundries of the P. and O. and the West India Companies, which are situated in that place, the latter company a few years since purchased the fine pond there, and erected upon its western edge a large store for ice. and which resembles a modern chapel minus the windows. It is divided into two compartments, each capable of contain- ing about 600 tons of ice ; and it will afford some idea of the amount of this useful article annually consumed by the com- pany s ships when we state that although the house was quite tiled last winter the entire stock has been already exhausted, the monthly consumption averaging about 80 tons. Of course great allowance- must be made for waste, which, during such a hot summer as that through which we have just passed, amounts to nearly 30 per cent. ; but this large loss, there is no doubt can be by various improvements ?? reduced. The blocks of foreign ice just now stored are about 30 inches by 18 inches in size, and are very clear and transparent. The car- taken by the company, and the expense incurred, to procure forthe benefit of the passengers a good supply of ice, speaks volumes in favour of their general solicitude for those who commit themselves to their care.

Hugh Lowther was the last resident of Lowther Castle. His brother Lancelot the 6th Earl inherited the estate in 1944 but because of Hugh’s large debts was forced to sell many of the family’s treasures. A large auction sale was held in 1947. Lancelot died in 1953 and was succeeded by James his grandson.

James wished to develop the estates and concentrated on farming. He saw Lowther Castle as an extravagance. After he returned from the World War II he said “it was a place that exemplified gross imperial decadence during a period of abject poverty. The army had damaged the grounds and buildings during the war and the castle had been empty for many years. James offered the Castle as a gift to three local authorities but all refused. At that time the only options for large country houses were to open them to the public or demolish them. He could not afford the former so he was forced to demolish the property. He left the shell of the castle intact as a silhouette. The forecourt became pig pens and the concrete on the south lawns that the army had laid he used as a base for a broiler chicken factory. The remainder of the gardens was used as a timber plantation.[1]

At Ravenswood in September 1883 the first Seventh‐day Adventist church in Britain was officially organized with 19 members although in fact there were some 65 persons by then who had signed a covenant to keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus, 37 of whom had been baptized in the font. In the following month Loughborough, his wife, and daughter returned to America. In 1884 the headquarters were moved to 239 Shirley Road and, as a consequence, the press recently installed at was moved to Grimsby. J. H. Durland succeeded Loughborough and remained in charge at Southampton until he moved to Kettering in 1887, although he also ran an evangelistic campaign at Exeter in August 1885. During his ministry Mrs. vVhite visited the church in 1885. After Lougbborough’s departure the church led a pilgrim existence up and down Shirley Road, including for a while a temporary return to and a sojourn in a back room of the home of two believers at No. 120, For a time it had no permanent minister, but Southampton being what it was, it never lacked visits long or short from visiting brethren...

Coastal forts etc[edit]

Southampton town walls. The English Channel was contested militarily between England and France during the 13th century, and Southampton was both an important base for naval operations and a tempting target for raiders.[4] At the start of the 13th century additional work was therefore conducted to improve the town's defences; the king granted £100 in 1202 and again in 1203 to help develop the earth banks around the town.

1283-1289 during King Edward I's second campaign in North Wales. Conwy Castle was built on a rock promontory.[5] to guard the entrance to the River Conwy.

1539 and 1544. The Device Forts, also known as Henrician Castles, are a series of artillery fortifications built to defend the southern coast of England by Henry VIII.

Between 1804 and 1812 the British authorities built a chain of towers based on the original Mortella tower to defend the south and east coast of England, Ireland, Jersey and Guernsey to guard against possible invasion from France

The Palmerston Forts are a group of forts and associated structures, around the coast of Britain. The forts were built during the Victorian period on the recommendations of the 1860 Royal Commission on the Defence of the United Kingdom, following concerns about the strength of the French Navy,[6]

Nab Tower - During the First World War the British Admiralty designed eight towers code named M-N that were to be built and positioned in the Straits of Dover to protect allied merchant shipping from German U-boats.

The Maunsell Forts were small fortified towers built in the Thames and Mersey estuaries during the Second World War

Yellow Cake[edit]

Eleanor Bron also gave the premiere performance of The Yellow Cake Revue, a series of pieces for voice and piano written in protest against uranium mining in the Orkney Islands by Peter Maxwell Davies.

In the 1960s and 1970s there were reports[7] of the potential for uranium mining between Stromness and Yesnaby. Plans to open just such a mine were halted in 1980 after local campaigning which included the production of The Yellow Cake Revue[8] by composer and conductor Peter Maxwell Davies, who lived on the neighbouring island of Hoy. The review title refers to Yellowcake, a processed uranium ore.

Stromness is referenced in the title of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies's popular piano piece Farewell to Stromness, a piano interlude from The Yellow Cake Revue, first performed on 21 June 1980 at the Stromness Hotel by the composer as part of the St. Magnus Festival
