Walk the England Coast Path – Mablethorpe to Humber Bridge
Time: 2 - 3 days
Start and Finish: Mablethorpe to Humber Bridge
A good choice of facilities at the numerous seaside resorts on the walk, but note that many will be seasonal and in the quieter sections may be closed in the off-season or run limited hours. The route presumably passes through Grimsby which would provide a few more options.

Walk the England Coast Path – Mablethorpe to Humber Bridge Details
The England Coast Path from Mablethorpe to the Humber Bridge 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 an 81km stretch of the coast between Mablethorpe and the Humber Bridge. This new access is expected to be ready in spring 2020.
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.
Mablethorpe to Cleethorpes
This section can be followed on right of ways as far as Saltfleet, but requires a diversion on the main road for 5km to North Somercoates before heading back to the coast at Donna Nook. Another diversion is needed to avoid the old airfield, after which the access is pretty good into Cleethorpes. Note that it’s not recommended (and possibly illegal) to try and find your own way along this coast as most of the section is MOD land and denoted as Danger Areas on the OS maps.
Cleethorpes to Humber Bridge
From Cleethorpes to Immingham, the access is patchy but beyond that the Humber Bank Path continues along the embankment of the Humber Estuary as far as the Humber Bridge. This final 23km section can currently be followed along existing rights of way.
Dave also established Walk up Snowdon, Walk up Scafell Pike and Walk up Ben Nevis just to mention a few.
