Prince Charles to spend the day in Cumbria

The Prince of Wales will tour a number of small businesses and charities on a tour of Cumbria on Tuesday.

The highlight is expected to be a walkabout in the centre of Wigton, where he'll help celebrate the 750th anniversary of Wigton's Market Charter.

He'll officially start the work on a commemorative Market Cross in the town.

He'll also visit Staveley Mill Yard, a green business park where 400 people work, to meet local business owners. The Yard supports non-tourism jobs in a rural area.

Later, he'll tour Dove Cottage and view key pieces from the collection of the Wordsworth Trust, of which he is patron, before visiting the Dalemain Marmalade Festival near Penrith.
