The Square, Dalston

A large village with a population of about 1600, Dalston is now a dormitory suburb of Carlisle, but became established as a market and industrial centre based upon textile production, using the River Caldew for water power.  The first cotton mill was established in 1782, and by the 1830s Dalston possessed two water powered corn mills, four cotton mills and a flax mill


Parts of St. Michael’s Church in the village square date back to the 13th century, although the church has been much altered by subsequent restoration and rebuilding


The main employer in Dalston is the Nestlé beverage factory, passed by The Cumbria Way to the north of the town.  Approximately 200,000 litres of milk are used every day in the production processes, Nescafé Cappuccino and Coffee-Mate being the main products


On the western edge of the town is the INEOS Dalston Terminal, a fuel depot served by rail from the Grangemouth refinery near Falkirk, and which supplies most of the petrol used in Carlisle, the north of Cumbria and parts of southern Scotland
