South West Coast Path

“The Walk of a Lifetime – The South West Coast Path National Trail is rated as one of the top walks to be found anywhere in the world by href=”” target=”_blank”>Lonely Planet and voted Britain’s best walking route by the readers of Walk magazine.” (South West Coast Path home page)

Proposed type of fence

The developers propose fencing the area including 1.8m high security fencing along the south west boundary abutting the South West Coast path – see extract from the specification below.

Two 6.2m high foot bridges are planned to guide walkers over the loading jetties. During blasting it is planned to close the South West Foot path for 30 minute intervals. No mention is made of any contingency plan in case the closure is longer. Depending on the timing of the closures walkers risk missing the Ferry at Helford or an unplanned walk in the dark.
