Criffel Street, Silloth
Criffel Street, Silloth
Silloth was developed as a fashionable spa town, but was not very successful, but is now attractive with its bright colour-washed buildings. It was planned by Messrs Hay of Liverpool as a grid of wide tree-lined streets. The main street is Criffel Street, named after the prominent mountain over the Solway Firth. On the seaward side of Criffel Street there is a large green, with pine trees, between the town and the well built Promenade, which gives good views across the Solway. The granite setts are now 'heritage' and a tourist attraction.
