A little known fact about the small seaside town of Silloth, is that our sea-washed marshes used to supply the turf for many large events and venues including Golf courses, Wembley stadium and the show courts at Wimbledon.
A quote from an article about Wimbledon below:
In 1921, when the championships at Wimbledon moved from Worple Road to its current location just a few miles down the road, groundskeepers brought in strips of turf from a seaside town called Silloth 350 miles to the north to cloak its new courts. But no one wanted to haul tons of turf hundreds of miles each year, so the team started its own turf nurseries, havens for the perfect green grass.
The turf from Silloth was initially brought in because they were struggling to grow their own grass and had daisies and weeds coming through but another problem that the Silloth turf brought was the fact that sea life such as shrimps had to be picked out of the grass before play could start.
