Carlisle Canal Shed (1861-1963)
Opened on the Border Union Railway (North British Railway).
This single ended shed was in the 'V' of the junction between the Border Union Railway and the Silloth branch. It was served from the east, from Canal Junction, splitting off the Border Union just after the junction.
British Railways assigned the shed the code 68E.
After closure the site has reverted to nature, although some remains, bricks and concrete, can be found at its site.
