The people of Maryport have been celebrating the re-opening of their refurbished lighthouse today.
Earlier this year, it underwent a major refurbishment to protect it for the future, and replace recent additions which were not in keeping with the original architecture.
As a result it has been painted inside and out, and a corroded steel panel has been removed, with a new cast iron sheet being put in its place.
Allerdale Borough Council's property services team has been managing the renovation, which was funded by a £50,000 grant, on behalf of Maryport Coastal Communities Team.
The Maryport Lighthouse project was one of 15 initiatives along the British coastline to benefit from a share of £700,000 of government cash with the aim of regenerating seaside towns.
