Flambourough Head which will appear in the second phase of the English Coast Path in Yorkshire.

Earlier this year there were fears that the plans for an England Coastal Path, a 3,000-mile route round the whole of England, would succumb to Government funding cuts when Environment Minister Richard Benyon described the project as a “sledgehammer to miss a nut”.

However, following the successful One Coast For All campaign by The Ramblers, the project is back on track with an estimated completion date of 2016 / 2017 meaning that, should you so wish, you will be able to walk the entire coastline of the UK on a single path – tieing in with the already open Wales and Scotland Coast paths.

The first section of path to be completed in our area will span from North Gare in Teesside to Filey Brigg, with a second phase continuing down the East Yorkshire coast, along Holderness and out to Spurn Point, finishing at the Humber Bridge.
