Clifton Hill Hotel - Cumbria - June 2012
Posted 24 June 2012 - 05:32 PM
In 1986 the Clifton Hill changed hands after 36 years in the ownership of the Kelso family. Martin and Beverley Tinson took over the 30-bedroom hotel.
In 2002 BF Hotels took over the hotel and had big plans for it ... Details here , but most of it never happened and in 2010 Story Homes put an application in to the District Council to demolish the hotel and build houses.
According to the local paper the Clifton Hill was formerly the residence of Viscount Lowther and was once used as a racing stables. Harry Carr, the former Queen’s jockey who died recently, was born there.
I have seen this building on a daily basis for most of my life , it was quite a striking sight with its green dome as you came down the hill into Clifton. Houses were built around it that obscured it a little, but it will be strange when it finally goes.
Anyway on with the pics.

Thanks for looking.
