The Ravenglass estuary is a draw for tourists. With beautiful scenery and lovely beaches.
Like a lot of coastal communities, however, it is blighted by rubbish brought in by the tide.
Villagers here have come together to start getting rid of the plastic plague.
The beach clean was organised by Beach Buddies who have come over from the Isle of Man. A similar scheme there has been a real success story. Now they're spreading the word on the mainland.
The rubbish collected will be recycled by Copeland Borough Council.
