Bus number 63 or 63a on the Crescent directly in front of the station. Ask for Petterill Bank Road. Get off at the shops and walk down hill about 50 yards, and it's on your left.  bob

Thanks for the help.  I can see it's going to be a bit of a trek to get from Alston to the archives - maybe the answer is to learn to drive!!

It seems very strange that the archives would say they had the docs and then say they have been stolen in a safe...unless they catalogued a private archive at someone's premises. If the docs you refer to were from solicitors sources, then it sounds like they may well have been stolen.  However if the matter went before the courts, there may be some records. If you PM me the details I will pop round to the archives and do a bit of digging.

For those of us miles away, does anyone know of a parish records online project covering carlisle, I need a marriage at saint cuthberts that occurred in november 1773 and I am guessing they will not be handling postal requests at the moment. I need to try and narrow down the christian name of my couples dads at least, as for one, can find no baptism records, and for other, there are several possibles for that year. If any ideas, love to hear, thanks.
