Maps of the route
The 41km stretch of the England Coast Path (ECP) from Sea Palling to Weybourne is now open to the public. Coastal access rights came into force along this stretch of coast on 12 December 2014 by order of the Secretary of State.
The final route was not altered from the consultation, therefore the proposal maps show the final route of the ECP along this stretch of coast and the adjoining land that is coastal margin, as approved by the Secretary of State on 15 April 2014.
The route is available to view on the National Trails website
Stage of progress
Stage 5: Open
If you are planning a walk on the ECP, check Natural England’s interactive access maps for details of local access restrictions and coast path diversions which may apply at certain times.
Coastal access rights normally apply to all land that is coastal margin - including any land seaward of the route - unless it falls into a category of excepted land.
Natural England’s report to the Secretary of State (which has no modifications) is available to view on Natural England’s archive website.
