Prince Charles is visiting a number of locations in Cumbria today and tomorrow, as part of his royal tour.

The Prince of Wales will walk through the village of Ennerdale Bridge, and will celebrate the anniversary of the village cooperative who saved their local pub from closure, and have created a new gym, cafe and village shop.

He will then head west to Whitehaven, to preview the regeneration of the Rosehill Theatre, ahead of its public re-opening.

Remaining in Whitehaven, Prince Charles will open the new Whitehaven Foyer, a charity partnership that provides accommodation and support to young people in need of housing.

Finally, he will head up to Flimby, to mark 35 years of New Balance trainers being manufactured in Cumbria, by touring the factory.

On Tuesday, Prince Charles will return to Appleby to see how the town has recovered from the floods of Storm Desmond, in 2015.

The Prince visited the town, along with a number of other locations in Cumbria, weeks after the floods struck.

This time he will tour the Appleby Creamery, an artisan cheese-making business which works with local farmers and small producers to support the rural economy.
