A Cumbrian care home is celebrating it's 150th birthday. The Silloth Nursing and residential Care Home opened its doors in 1862. In that time it has cared for convalescing patients from the Cumberland Infirmary who used to arrive by train.
The home also looked after wounded soldiers during World War 1 and offered care to woman from Gretna Munitions. A host of former staff have been invited to join the celebrations at the home which cares for elderly people and young disabled adults.
