Wigton is in the centre of the Solway
Plain, situated between the Caldbeck Fells and the Solway coast.
The market town evolved from a pre-medieval street plan, which
can still be traced today. There is a triangular market place,
once the centre of the Medieval town. Many of the buildings around
the market place are of Georgian style, and the upper storeys
have altered little. Wigton is the birthplace of the writer Melvin
Bragg, who has written extensively on Wigton, referring to it
in his writings as Thurston). Sequences from "A Time to
Dance" were set in and filmed in the town. Wigton has a
variety of shops, most are family owned. The covered market takes
place on a Tuesday at the Market Hall. Also see Wigton
