To follow

Walk the England Coast Path – Mablethorpe to Humber Bridge

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.

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!!
