Where to find C & M Models shop
Opposite the main Post Office and up the stairs!
This is the instruction that gets most people to our door.
The photograph to the right shows the view from the front of the General Post Office on Warwick Road. We are through the doorway which can be seen between the one way sign and the boot of the car on the right hand side of the photo. Then up the stairs to the first floor.
If your knowledge of Carlisle doesn't stretch to knowing where this is, read on..... A word of warning, make sure that you obey local parking rules and restrictions, traffic regulations are strictly enforced within the city!
We are some 3 minutes on foot from Carlisle station, traffic lights permitting, and about the same distance from the pedestrianised area in the centre of the city.

DIRECTIONS FROM THE STATION
The photo to the left shows the view from the front of Carlisle station. Cross the parking area and the first batch of traffic lights and walk around in front of this curve of buildings, known as "The Crescent". At the end of this building, you will reach a set of traffic lights next to a cafe "Suede". Cross over both set of lights to the Aga shop and turn right up the street you have crossed, Warwick Road. After some 30 yards, you pass the estate agents "Northwood.co.uk" - we are on the first floor above this shop. Turn immediately left into Crosby Street and immediately pass through the first door on your left and up the stairs - we look forward to seeing you.
DIRECTIONS FROM THE CITY CENTRE
From the southern end of the pedestrianised zone (between the Cumberland Building Society and the Nat West bank), cross over the road by the Cumberland Building Society towards the Abbey, and turn left down Bank Street. You approach a set of traffic lights at a 'T' junction, cross over these by the Pizza Express and on reaching the other side of the road, turn right. After some 50 yards, the Aga shop is on the corner, turn left up this street, Warwick Road. After some 30 yards, you pass the estate agents "Northwood.co.uk" - we are on the first floor above this shop. Turn immediately left into Crosby Street and immediately pass through the first door on your left and up the stairs.
