Day 50

Pleasant stay with great breakfast at Arkale Lodge in Carlisle and owner gave me short-cut to Carlisle United’s ground. Passed Brunton Park and hope to return later to get a story and some “official” photos (especially as adding the 36th club put on an extra three days to the journey!)

In the meantime, below are photos of their ground, a statue of Hugh McIlmoyle who became a legend at Carlisle in the 60s and 70s and the rugby club next door. I have to say that the Brunton Park pitch looks in absolute perfect condition.

From there it was a a quick ride to meet Tony Stephenson at TheBestOfCarlisle who gave me an overview of Carlisle and recommended Indigo as the best Indian Restaurant within 100 miles. Indigo sounds too good to miss so I will be shooting down there later as anybody who knows anything about me will tell you I am a huge Indian fan!
