Craster footpath improved
Walking enthusiasts visiting the Craster area can enjoy a newly improved footpath when walking south from the village.
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.”
Other investment has seen improved surface to sections of the Coast Path between Cullernose Point and The Bathing House and, more recently, near Howick Haven.
