The floods of 2005 caused widespread damage across much of Cumbria, but thankfully most people's homes have been repaired, and new flood defences are in place.
However, it has taken until now to restore a riverside path in south Cumbria, and this week saw an official opening ceremony, at the River Lune in Kirkby Lonsdale.
Fiona Marley Paterson reports:
A popular riverside path near Kirkby Lonsdale has been restored to its former glory following a £67,000 improvement project.
A new all-weather surface has been created along the one kilometre route close to the famous 'Ruskin's View'.
Improvments to the path, which links Devil's bridge and the town centre, include new access for wheelchairs and pushchairs and landscaping.
