Trails in the North West

English Coastal Path

Natural England has started work on rolling out coastal access along the North West coast, with some sections in the north of the region already open and others all in  development. For up to date information on the North West and other areas follow: Progress on the English Coastal Path or Twitter @NWCoastalAccess 

You can also find news items on the North West Coastal Forum website which include downloadable updates from Natural England detailing the stretches of coastal path and latest updates – see the Regional News pages.

Other Coastal and Coast-linked Trails in North West England

This section will be developed over time and will include links to other walking, cycling and horse-riding routes along our coastline.

Changing shores – The Crosby Sequence
Through the coming together of science and art the National Oceanography Centre, working with Green Sefton and Sarah Hymas, have created a narrated coastal walk along Crosby’s shoreline, north of Liverpool. This has been developed to raise awareness of shoreline change and coastal hazards and has been funded by AGU Celebrate 100 grants.  Join NOC on the walk by downloading the GPS waypoints and MP3s from: Changing Shores Crosby Twitter @Wirewall_NOC, @SarahHymas, @GreenSefton_
