Large boulders are being used to protect the Settle to Carlisle railway from the worst of the weather.
In February 2016 there was a landslip just north of Armathwaite near Carlisle, which meant that stretch of line was closed for more than a year. The repairs cost £23m.
The track runs above the River Eden, and the final phase of work involves packing 20,000 tonnes of rock into the riverbank, to protect against erosion caused by heavy rain.Copyright: Network Rail
