Whiplash Injury in Silloth


Silloth is a port town in Cumbria on the shore of the Solway Firth, and is sometimes known as Silloth-on-Solway. Silloth gets its name from the Old English ()and Old Norse word (hlaða), so sǣ hlaða, meaning sea barns or sheds, which probably refers to the fishing sheds used by early fishermen. There is evidence that the Romans were in the area as they needed this coastline to defend against possible attacks from Ireland and Scotland. Silloth and the surrounding area has been a centre of agriculture for centuries, and the town didn’t really develop until the advent of the railways. Its neighbour, Skinburness, is believed to mean ‘the headland of the demon-haunted castle’ and it is thought that perhaps Sir Gawaine (of Arthurian fame) met the Green Knight at St John’s church on Grune Point.
