Work has begun to stop part of a Cumbrian road disappearing into the sea.
The 280 metre stretch of the Maryport to Silloth Road will be wrapped in a rock armour to prevent further erosion.
Due to the natural coastal erosion caused by it's proximity to the Solway Firth, around 20 metres of the road has worn away in the past two years.
Cumbria County Council habe approved the £320,000 funding for the project, which will see a new defence built from around 7,000 tonnes of stone and other material.
The road is expected to remain open to traffic while the work is underway under a single-lane traffic system.
