Norfolk Coast Path resurfacing work closures

Jan 31, 2022 | News

The following sections of the Norfolk Coast Path National Trail have repairs or resurfacing taking place, or scheduled;

Sheringham: Work to resurface a section of the Norfolk Coast Path is set to start on 7 February along Sheringham Footpath, between the boating lake to the RNLI lookout. Work is expected to take six weeks to complete, weather permitting. Due to the nature of the work it will be necessary to close this section of the Coast Path while the surface improvement work is underway. Two diversions are available: a beach diversion of approximately 1 mile, or an inland diversion of approximately 3.3 miles along nearby paths with kind permission from Sheringham Golf Course and the National Trust.

Trimingham: The Coast Path has been rerouted through Trimingham House caravan park due to a cliff fall. The new route is waymarked on the ground.

Thornham: Work to resurface a section of the Norfolk Coast Path started Monday 10 January 2022 along Thornham Footpath 3 (FP3), between Staithe Lane and Church Street. Work is expected to take six weeks to complete, weather permitting. While this section of the Coast Path is temporarily closed there will be a diversion route in place following the quiet road between Staithe Lane and Church Lane.

Holme-next-the-Sea: A section of the Norfolk Coast Path is closed between the Norfolk Ornithologists Association observatory and Thornham. The boardwalk is now in need of repair as it poses a health and safety risk. However, the replacement work cannot be carried out until the end of the hibernation period of the natterjack toad which is a European Protected Species. We anticipate that work will begin May/June 2022 and it will take around 8 weeks to complete. Norfolk Wildlife Trust facilities and the NOA observatory will still be accessible from the west end of the Coast Path at all times.
