Walk the England Coast Path – Humber Bridge to Easington

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”.

Welcome to Walking the England Coast Path.

The original online guidebook to the brand new National Trail around the English Coastline.

In 2020, England will join Wales in having a long distance trail along it’s entire coastline, a distance of around 4,500 km. The path is made possible due to new laws that allow open access to the English coastline, including what’s known as ‘spreading room’ to allow for future changes in the coastline.

The work to open the England Coast Path is ongoing, with all the sections being added and detailed here as they are officially opened. We may also include information on those sections that are not yet open, and where there’s an existing footpath or even national trail, will include a relevant map.

For the latest news on each section of the England Coast Path, visit the official government site:  here

Each section of the England Coast Path will be detailed with a route map, photos and information of what to see and do along the way. This will include a totally free business directory and a beach guide.

We can’t wait for the official opening!!
