about wigton

 

Tall Georgian houses lining its streets, an attractive memorial fountain gracing the old market place and an elegant Georgian church all suggest that Wigton was a market town of some importance in days gone by, with its jumble of streets, narrow lanes and alleyways somehow earning it the nickname ‘The Throstle's Nest'.

While some well-known literary figures have passed through the town, notably Charles Dickens in 1857, one notable writer and broadcaster was actually born here; Melvin Bragg later honoured as Lord Bragg of Wigton.
