The England Coast Path is a new national trail around all of England’s coast.

Natural England have been co-ordinating the development of the path, which aims to improve access to the coast around the country.

Locally they have worked closely with Rights of Way Officers from Brighton & Hove City Council, West & East Sussex County Councils and the South Downs National Park who have provided expert advice in developing the path.

Signs for the section of the new path running from Shoreham-by-Sea to Eastbourne have recently been installed and include The Living Coast logo to identify the section of the path through our Biosphere.

The new national trail is being opened in sections and is due to be complete by 2022.
