Swifts Mews, Strand Road
Swifts Mews, Strand Road
There is a datestone from 1873 above the boarded-up door. The mews was built as stables for the nearby Swifts Racecourse. After the races relocated to Blackwell in 1904 the range of buildings continued to be used for stabling, and there was also a riding school at one time (information from English Heritage PastScape LinkExternal link ). Later use was as garages, workshops and storage.
More recently, the property was acquired by Carlisle College. It was demolished in 2013, a few months after this photo was taken, and a new digital and creative arts centre has been built on the site.
