The images top are of Silloth Green, a vast Grassland with Amusements and Waterside Walks.

The fourth image is from Silloth Green looking towards the Town centre. Silloth is a fairly small Town with the centre laid out in the 1860s, soon after the Railway reached the area in the late 1850s.

The Town was designed as a Seaside Holiday Resort, mainly for residents of the City of Carlisle, 23 mile east.

The Town centre has wide streets with chunky Victorian buildings, no doubt built with the intention of having a much larger Town built around it.

The main street in Silloth is Criffel Street with the Christ Church being the tallest building. This Church was built with granite imported from Ireland, completed in 1870. Large Image of Christ Church.

The Golf Hotel is also on Criffel Street with views over Silloth Green.

The Balmoral Hotel is also on Criffel Street with views over Silloth Green.

The Silloth on Solway Golf Club is situated close to the town centre, a Links Course laid out in 1892, one of the top courses in Cumbria.

The Solway has a number of rivers that run into it such as the Nith, Eden, Annan, and Esk. The Solway forms part of the England / Scotland border, with Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland across the water to the north.

Bowness-on-Solway is 16 miles east, for the start of the Hadrian's Wall Path that runs about 84 miles east to Newcastle on the east coast of England.
