This goods yard was just north of Carlisle Citadel. It was on the west side of the passenger line and the east side of the Carlisle Goods Loop (Carlisle Goods Traffic Committee) from which it diverged at Caldew Junction, access being from the north.
The yard was created in 1877 when the northern approach to Carlisle was realigned leading to the closure of West Walls Goods and Wanton Walls Shed for the new alignment. The shed site became the Town Dyke Orchard.
Approach was via a short portion of joint line between Caldew Junction and Dentonholme Junction.
The yard had a large two road goods shed, cattle pens and a grain store.
Out of town marshalling sidings were opened at Kingmoor by Kingmoor Shed, the replacement for Wanton Walls Shed, as marshalling trains on site was awkward due to space constraints.
The yard closed in 1965. The site is now an industrial estate served by Viaduct Estate Road and car parks.
