Can you help to keep the Path accessible for everyone to enjoy - one step at a time?
We need to replace 1,000 wooden steps this summer. This is the number of steps that are required by local rangers to ensure that their local stretch of the Coast Path is well maintained.
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!
