As part of the revamp of Carlisle Park in Morpeth the County Council has restored its iconic gates to their former glory.
The landmark gates include the heraldic badges of the Town of Morpeth and the Earl of Carlisle who originally donated the park to the town.
The works were funded by contributions from the small schemes allowances of local County Councillors David Bawn, John Beynon and Richard Wearmouth.
Cllr Bawn said: "The entrance to the park is now looking great, with the newly restored floral clock and the new planted beds. The brightly coloured restored gates really add to the improvements in this part of the town."
Cllr Beynon added: "With the installation of the new Emily Davison statue later this year, Carlisle Park will continue to be one of the area's great visitor attractions."
Cllr Wearmouth said: "I was particularly pleased that we managed to get the gates put back in place in time for the judging of the Britain in Bloom competition this month."
