The rain recently deluged the Lake district and Cumbria again, but repairs to a major section of footpaths that were damaged in the 2009 floods will now get underway.
The work, on the outskirts of Keswick, is expected to last 10 weeks.
During that time they will install 1,200 metres of timber logs to strengthen the beck, increasing the beck capacity and so safeguarding the repaired riverside path from future storm damage. This timber log technique will allow the bank to be re-profiled and the popular footpath to be restored.
