Denton Holme is an inner city district in Carlisle, Cumbria, England. The population of this ward was 6,383 taken at the 2011 census.Denton Holme is usually regarded as a "village within the city" and is situated to the immediate south west of the city centre on the western bank of the River Caldew. A man made stream or mill race known as the Little Caldew flows through and underneath the area.Today it is a mostly residential area but in the nineteenth century and most of the twentieth century along with the neighbouring districts of Caldewgate and Wapping it was Carlisle's main industrial district with many textile mills, engineering works and other factories such as car seat manufacturers and confectioners. Today very few factories remain although the last mill, Ferguson Brothers owned by Coats Viyella at Holme Head only closed in the 1990s.The majority of the housing is red-brick terraced and in fact many of the side streets are still cobbled rather than tarmaced although some new housing has been built in recent years and some of the former factories have been converted into apartments.The main street, Denton Street has many small shops along it and other businesses including a bingo hall and a branch of the Cumberland Building Society. There was at one time a cinema in the suburb.There is a primary school, built by and named after Robert Ferguson at Holme Head and the former Morley Street School has been converted into a public library.
