24th September 2014.  The Environment Agency (EA) advise us that the Blakeney East bank is going very well with a temporary path alongside for walkers. We hope this will be completed in the next 6 weeks

In addition work will begin to finish off the Cley East bank w/c 6th October, for up to 2 weeks. Walkers will be able to use the Beach rd. alongside to access the beach.

There will also be a small project to work on the Stiffkey Outfall (West of Morston) w/c 29th September. Again this will be up to 2 weeks and the EA will ensure an access path around the work area.

Please be aware of these work areas if you are in the vicinity and adhere to safety requests. We appreciate and are working together with the EA to maintain flood defence and improve access for walkers of the Norfolk Coast Path.

In preparation for the opening of the coastal link under Coastal Access from Cromer to Beeston Regis, you will find that new signage is being installed along this new route together with a notification that the route will not be open until early December 2014. We ask that you please follow the current line of the Norfolk Coast Path which goes inland and remains for the time being as the official route.

England Coast Path

Today, 3rd September 2014, we’re celebrating the government’s announcement that the entire England Coast Path will soon be open for walkers.

Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, has announced that the 3,000 mile path will be complete and open for all by 2020.

The Ramblers have been the driving force behind the campaign to open up the coast for everyone to enjoy, bringing beaches for kids to play on and cliffs for climbers to clamber up, and we’re thrilled that this dream will soon become a reality.

In 2009, we won the right to walk along the coast and explore our stunning beaches but development on the ground was slow. Through our One Coast for All campaign, we’ve been lobbying the government to open up our coastline and set out a full timetable for completion. And now they have.

So whether you’re waiting to stroll along a short stretch of the seaside near you, or want to walk the entire coastal circumference of the country, soon you’ll be able to.

The boost from government means that our coastal path will get more investment and will be completed sooner. But it’s not just good news for walkers – it’ll also breathe new life into our coastal towns, supporting tourism and local economies.

Thank you to everyone who has supported our One Coast for All campaign. And thank you to the government for bringing the glorious benefits of the humble English seaside to the nation.

You can already walk along the coast in Wales and Scotland. And some parts of the English path are ready to walk now. Why not find a walk or route to enjoy?
