The walk meets the Southern Vectis bus route 8 at various points which would allow early return to Ryde.
There are a number of cafes, pubs and hotels en route. Lunch stop probably at Bembridge.
A section of the Coastal Path west of the Crab and Lobster pub was closed on 30 December 2019 because of a landslip and walkers diverted via Howgate Road.
There may be a damp field or two if we have to go inland of the Priory to St Helens Duver.
