The view from the top of The Mount in Fleetwood can be breathtaking.

And as part of an ongoing renovation project to restore this iconic feature, with the £1 million funds donated by Doreen Lofthouse, the Weekly News has teamed up with Wyre Council.

Wyre Council asked Fleetwood residents to send in their photos and these are just a few of the imaginative photos sent in for the Weekly News to publish.

The seaward side of the Grade II registered gardens is being restored to its 19th century design, starting with the return of the cast iron railings that topped the esplanade wall.

Specially made to replicate the ornamental pattern of the original Victorian design, installation of the new railings is nearing completion and work is underway to repair the pathways, edgings and surfaces.

A Wyre spokeswoman said: “We’ll also be restoring the shelters and adding heritage benches, starting next week.”

In addition to Mrs Lofthouse’s donation, Wyre Council is sending off a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund in September, with the council seeking funding for restoration other parts of the Mount site - the pavilion, the rose garden and the gate lodge buildings.
