Walk the England Coast Path – Humber Bridge to Easington Details
The England Coast Path from Humber Bridge to Easington is not yet in place and isn’t practical to walk along the existing right of way network, though individual sections can currently be walked without lengthy diversion.
Natural England state
Natural England has begun to investigate how to improve coastal access along a 63km stretch of the coast between the Humber Bridge and Easington. This new access is expected to be ready by spring 2020.
Officers from Hull City Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council are providing Natural England with expert local advice and helping to make sure there is full consultation with local interests during the development of the route.
Up to date information can be found here, but there are no indications yet as to the route of this section of the England Coast Path.

As the route involves some significant sections on Main Roads, we’ll publish a map once the official route is in place.
From the Humber Bridge, the England Coast Path follows the established Trans Pennine Bridleway as far as Hull before the going becomes tricky past the docks and industrial areas. However, once the village of Paull there’s a good section of right of way that can be followed. This isn’t long lasting, and you’ll need some imagination in order to follow the coast as far as Easington. Lengthy sections are walkable, but a through walk would be best left until the route is opened officially. Spurn Point can be reached, but it does not appear to be on the official route as presumably it’s both a lengthy diversion and prone to erosion. There’s also the Spurn Discovery Centre run by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust that’s presumably on the route of the England Coast Path that provides more information on Yorkshire’s very own “Land’s End”.
Dave also established Walk up Snowdon, Walk up Scafell Pike and Walk up Ben Nevis just to mention a few.
