Tourism businesses are hosting a series of celebrations today to mark the official reopening of the A591.
The road between Keswick and Grasmere collapsed due to flooding during Storm Desmond in December. It reopened last week and businesses are now keen to promote the area.

"The closure of the A591 following Storm Desmond had a terrible impact on local residents and local businesses, but the good news is that the road is now fixed.
"This event is about sending the message loud and clear that Cumbria is back 'open for business'.
"I'd like to thank all those who have helped to organise this event, as well as those who have contributed funding, in particular South Lakeland District Council."
