Things to do in Gilgarran, Cumbria


Gilgarran is a medium sized settlement, it has no community services to speak of, only a bus service twice a day.

It has changed a lot in recent years with the addition of the avenue, and the current project to build and develop new housing. To do this, a part of the once community used wood is having to be destroyed, but we are still left with most of it. It is a perfect place to get away from the surrounding land, of Workington, Whitehaven and Cockermouth. Gilgarran is situated right in the middle of all three of these towns, and once you get to Distington, a mere 1.6 miles away there are literally links to every where.

The village its self has a mere 59 houses, but has a lively and close nit community, on the whole it is a peaceful and tranquil place to live.

Most of the houses are around 20 years old in the main village, next to the site of the old gill.
