The Ramblers have welcomed proposals to open up three new stretches of coastal footpath across England. The three sections are:
(i) Camber to Folkestone
(ii) Hopton on Sea to Sea Palling
(iii) Whitehaven to Silecroft
Tom Fewins from the Ramblers said:
“We’re delighted to see progress being made across the country. We’re three big steps closer to opening up the whole of the county’s coastline. New and improved access to the coast will bring huge economic, health and social benefits to communities, as well as providing walkers with a beautiful coastal route to enjoy”.
The aim is to establish a national 3,000 mile footpath around the English coast, similar to the coast path opened in Wales. The Ramblers have asked for help in getting support for the project to be completed with further information available at http://www.ramblers.org.uk/news/news/2015/september/new-sections-ofengland-coast-path-announced.aspx.
