A Cumbrian Stone company has built the tomb and flooring that the remains of King Richard III will be reburied in.
It's one of a list of connections the ancient monarch has to Cumbria.
Before he took the crown, he resided at the Penrith castle for periods between 1471 and 1485, while he held the position of sheriff of Cumberland.
His role was to secure the county against the Scots and keep rival local families under control.
Richard carried out alterations at the castle, transforming it into a suitable residence.
After Richard became king, the castle remained Crown property, but it was not used again as a permanent residence.
