Wigton is a charming market town near the northern edge of the Lake District, in the county of Cumbria. It lies in the heart of the Solway Plain, a wonderfully unspoiled coastal plain which stretches from west of Carlisle to near Gretna and Annan, across the Scottish border. Wigton is close to some of the region’s most spectacular countryside, with the Solway Coast to its west and the Caldbeck Fells to its east. This thriving market town has regular livestock auctions held at Hope Auctions. Largely untouched by tourism, it is the perfect place for visitors seeking an unspoiled Cumbrian community as a base from which to explore the region.
