George Street, Wigton
George Street, Wigton
These houses are in the centre of Wigton. Their condition in the 1970s bordered on unfit for human habitation. However, they were saved from condemnation by a change of approach in housing policy. Instead of being cleared, they were improved. They are now ideal low-cost homes, close to all amenities. Together with sympathetic modern infill development, they contribute variety to the streetscape of this interesting market town (birthplace of Melvyn Bragg).
