New sections of England Coast Path Open on the Solway

New sections of England Coast Path Open on the Solway.

33.3 miles (53.3km) of new King Charles III England Coast Path from Gretna to Allonby have opened.

The new sections, from Gretna to Kirkandrews-on-Eden and between Rumbling Bridge and Allonby total 33.3 miles (53.3km), of which 9.9 miles (15.9km) provides entirely new or significantly improved access to a wide range of coastal terrain and historical sites.

A second section of the path begins just north of Abbeytown, before running across Calvo & Skinburness Marsh, round Grune Point and heading south through Skinburness, Silloth, Beckfoot and Mawbray to Allonby.

Natural England is working to open the remaining central part of the stretch to walkers in the near future and, when completed, the new path will provide a continuous walkable stretch 65.79 miles (106km) along the Cumbrian coast linking with the 80.4 miles (129.44km) that are already open in the region.
