The Jester,  formerly Earl Grey
The Jester, formerly Earl Grey
This pub at the south end of Botchergate opened in 1935 as the Earl Grey, to replace an older establishment of the same name. Since then it has had several identities, and is now closed and up for sale. The architect was Harry Redfern, who designed many pubs for the Carlisle State Management Scheme.

Near the pavement at the side of the building, on Rydal street, are the painted letters "EWS". This dates from World War ll, and stands for "Emergency Water Supply", to be used by firefighters if the main supply was damaged. LinkExternal link
