A project to bury cables underground to ensure the scenery is not disturbed at a location of outstanding natural beauty in Cumbria is underway.
Work is being carried out at Castle Carrock near Carlisle and will result in a number of electricity poles being removed, the BBC reports.
A total of 22 such structures are to be replaced by around two km of underground cables as part of a new initiative by Electricity North West.
The £5.4 million project, which will be take place across five years, is attempting to remove a large number of visually intrusive cables throughout the north-west of England.
Electricity North West representative Eddie Hamilton said: "The aim is to cause as little disruption to supplies and people travelling along the route as possible."
Earlier in the month, Wales Online reported that Western Power Distribution had spent around £230,000 in an effort to bury cables at Strumble Head, located in Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
