Historic Building in Carlisle
Carlisle Guildhall is an historic late 14th century building, located in Carlisle, England. The Guildhall Museum is housed in the upstairs of the building. The building was built in 1407 of timber, tile bricks and clay, by Richard of Redeness.
A guildhall is where tradesmen from the middle ages would form forming special associations or Guilds to protect themselves. Carlisle had eight Trade Guilds for Butchers, Merchants, Shoemakers, Skinners, Smiths, Tailors, Tanners and Weavers.
