Fears over Wigton's historic buildings prompts heritage survey
Fears for the future of some of Wigton’s historic buildings have prompted a review of the town to be launched.
A heritage survey will take place to discover the condition of the town’s historic architecture.
Almost 100 sites will be checked by volunteers working for the North of England Civic Trust (NECT).
Specially-trained volunteers will be scouring the town as of this week, looking at the condition of buildings. They will complete their work by the end of October.
It follows similar projects carried out by the organisation in Workington, Maryport and Cockermouth last year.
