Can you help to keep the Path accessible for everyone to enjoy - one step at a time?
This summer supporters have helped us to replace 1,000 wooden steps by raising £10,000 as part of the 40 for 40 campaign. The 'Step Up' appeal ran from the beginning of May until the end of June.
We will always need to replace wooden steps around the Path, on average 1,000 steps a year. If you would like to contribute to this ongoing work please donate below.
By providing local rangers with good quality hard wood materials, their local stretch of the Coast Path can become better maintained. Any contributions received from July 2018 onwards could help to replace more steps next year.
Replacing these well-known (and loved?!) icons of Coast Path infrastructure, enables us to to make the hills easier for you and importantly they reduce erosion across some of the most protected landscapes in the UK.
Including labour, it costs £25 to replace each step, but if you donate just £10 today we could buy the materials needed, and our partners on the ground will donate the time and skills (worth £15), to install them. Now that’s what we call great team work!
Nearly 20,000 timber steps are in place along the Coast Path
Wooden steps can last 15-20 years, but that still means over 1,000 need replacing every year!
