The England Coast Path – Work-in-Progress

This article is from Signpost 57, Summer 2018

As many of you may know already, the England Coast Path is being developed as a new long-distance trail. It should deliver improved public all of England’s coastline (a similar initiative is being undertaken for Wales). Natural England is hoping to complete work on the trail in 2020.

The areas of coastline that fall within Peak and Northern’s direct remit are in the counties of Lancashire and Merseyside, where proposals are in development by Natural England. However, the whole of the Coastal Path may have interest to anyone keen on walking.

And not too far away from PNFS’s area, John Harker has spotted that proposals have recently been published for part of the North-East section of the Trail (Easington to Filey Brigg).

If you are interested in finding out more about this fascinating project, a good starting point is the government website: http://www.gov.uk/government/collections/england-coast-path-improving-public-access-to-the-coast
