Commemorative Pyramid

At the entrance to Barton Laws Playing Fields is a Commemorative pyramid. To the North Side is an inscription “This Playing Field was purchased in 1920 to perpetuate the memory of the townspeople of Wigton who served in The Great War 1914-1918”

The Playing  Fields are maintained by the Town Council.    They are for Community use and are currently used by several football teams.  Additional smaller pitches for junior teams are located in Wigton Park.

Recently, the Town Council have acquired an extra parcel of land from Allerdale Borough Council on the other side of the River Wiza.  It is envisaged that once the new Bridge is in place the area will be developed for extra sports facilities for the town.
