Abbey Street, Carlisle, Cumbria

Abbey Street is still paved with grey stone ‘sets’ as it was when Georgiana lived there as a little girl. This is the view from near the site of her home, her grandmother’s ‘mansion house’, looking towards the Cathedral at the end of the street. The ancient abbey gate can just be seen, looking very much the same as it did in 1805 when Georgiana was born in Abbey Street and baptised in the cathedral.
