England Coast Path

Wednesday 22nd September I attended the formal opening of the Silcroft to Whitehaven stretch of the England Coast Path project at St Bees. It is Natural England’s proud boast that when completed the entire England Coast Path will be the longest long distance path in the world. Currently 70 miles of the Cumbria path is open between Morecambe Bay and the Solway Firth. It is far more than just a narrow path as a coastal margin has been identified as part of the access corridor throughout. This will make a visit to the coast anywhere rewarding and a genuine opportunity to sense the magic of nature at the green and salty blue interface.

Cutting the ribbon is Mohammed Dhalech from Carlisle, chair of Mosaic Outdoors – the coast path opens the coast to all in our society
