The new footpath

Northumberland County Council’s countryside and green spaces team has made improvements to this section of the Coast Path.

The footpath originally had a grass surface but it had been eroded, creating various narrow routes, often turning to mud during wet weather.

The area has now been levelled and a wide, crushed stone path laid, providing a path that can be enjoyed all year round.

Paul Jones, director of local services and housing delivery, said: “Popular walking routes can easily become eroded through heavy use and we are pleased that through this investment we have been able to improve this section of path along a very popular and beautiful section of our coastline to ensure it will be fit for purpose for many years to come.”
