Celebrating 50 Years!

15 - 17 June: South West Coast Path Association celebrate 50 years with 3 days of events at Royal William Yard, Plymouth

Trailblazer Walk Finale
Thursday 15 June, 12.15pm
The Green, Royal William Yard

We have travelled 630 miles in a continuous relay, joined by hundreds of people that love the South West Coast Path in celebration of our golden milestone! It's been an epic journey and we can't believe the finish line is so close! 

We've had wall-to-wall sunshine all the way and have experienced all that the path offers in nature, wellbeing, friendship, beauty, tranquillity, and some pretty exhausting sections that took our breath away in more ways than one!

As we enter Royal William Yard there is going to be a party atmosphere as we walk in with 100 Beach of Dreams silk pennants to complete a 500x pennant spectacular installation to commemorate our 50th anniversary!

There are still places available to walk with us and carry a silk pennant:

Rame Head to Cremyll to RWY

Mount Batten to RWY
