King Charles III England Coast Path: Sea Palling to Weybourne

Find out about the progress of improving coastal access - including maps, process and timing – in Norfolk.

The 41km stretch of the King Charles III England Coast Path (KCIIIECP) 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.

Maps of the route

You can see the route on the National Trails website.

There are maps of the stretch in the original report on the Natural England website in the National Archives. These maps also show the coastal margin. The Secretary of State approved the proposals in the report on 15 April 2014.

The outcome of objections to the report are on the Planning Portal website, also in the National Archives.

Stage of progress

Stage 5: Open

If you are planning a walk on the ECP, check our 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.
