The England Coast Path – A project born out of years of Ramblers’ campaigning.
In the past days I was really excited to discover that the worlds longest continuos coastal trail will be opened in 2020, and further more that it is right on my doorstep in England. The final trail will be almost 3,000 miles long, and for the first time it gives the right of access to open coast allowing people to walk over access land to explore right up to the water’s edge. The England Coast Path will increase tourism, connect communities, boost rural economies, and allow opportunities for people to enjoy walking by the seaside. Natural England has been busy working with landowners, highway authorities and others to open up stretches of the path. With nine stretches now open and work underway on many more, it should be open in no time.
