Blow those cobwebs away on a Norfolk Coast Path floodbank!

2nd December 2014

Nearly a year ago, in December 2013, several stretches of the Norfolk Coast Path were badly damaged by the tidal surge. Whilst most of the trail was still open, some parts were left too dangerous to use. Work took place to make safe and open up the whole coast path as soon as possible and by April this year, repairs had been made so the public could enjoy the whole trail again.

However, some stretches still needed extensive work to form a more permanent path. Now, following work by the Environment Agency, Norfolk County Council and partners, the Norfolk Coast Path between Burnham Deepdale to Burnham Overy Staithe and Blakeney to Cley has been completely repaired and improved.

This has meant reconstructing and reshaping flood banks along this stretch of the coastline as well as repairing and replacing the footpath surface which was also damaged. This fabulous stretch of Norfolk coastline is now reopened with an improved footpath throughout.

This wild stretch of the coastline is ideal for a winters walk to experience first-hand the power of the weather.
