Markets have been banned from Cockermouth's Market Place, after a High Court ruling.
It's understood the case was brought by a single local man, who questioned whether prohibiting traffic from the road on Saturday market days was legal.
That's come as a shock to people in the town, as it's had a Market Charter for around 800 years.
But Allerdale Borough Council says markets have been held without the road being closed in the past, and that the ruling shouldn't prevent other events, like the Taste Cumbria food festival, from taking place.
