Improvements on the Norfolk Coast Path

20th August 2013

To date 2013 has seen a year of major improvements on the Norfolk Coast Path.

Natural England has made two major projects at Brancaster Marsh and Holme-next-the-Sea a reality: nearly two kilometres of sleeper boardwalk at Brancaster Marsh has been completely renewed. The new boardwalk makes it much easier for walkers to enjoy the fantastic views across the marsh. We are very pleased with the result, which should provide a high standard of surface across the marsh for at least twenty years.  We have already received numerous positive comments from both visitors and local people using the route.

The chalk path at Holme-next-the-Sea Nature Reserve has been completed. The project now provides a 1.3 kilometre mixed-ability surface in a very picturesque and popular area. The Norfolk Wildlife Trust, who manage the area are very pleased with the footpath as it will help to attract visitors and keep people off other sensitive areas of the National Nature Reserve.

Additional to these fantastic projects, the Environment Agency has been extremely busy working on vital flood defence work on some of the floodbanks along the Norfolk Coast Path, namely between Morston and Blakeney but also at Thornham. As a result of their invaluable work path surfaces have been dramatically improved.
