Skiddaw Building, University of Cumbria
Skiddaw Building, University of Cumbria
The University of Cumbria was established in August 2007, but this building on the Fusehill Street Campus is obviously a bit older. It was opened in 1864 as the Carlisle Union Workhouse, and served as a military hospital during two World Wars. In 1938 the Workhouse buildings were converted to a municipal hospital, which became the City General under the NHS. Patient care transferred to the modern Cumberland Infirmary in the late 1990s and the site was taken over by St. Martin's College, one of the amalgamated institutions of the new University.
