Our Projects - Hendersick path realignment
This section of the South West Coast Path crosses a geological fault which has resulted in a number of slumps over many years. The South West Coast Path has been realigned in a minor way twice in the last 15 years. The very high rainfall over the winter of 2012-13 saturated the subsoil which resulted in a section of cliff approximately 200m undergoing a substantial landslip. This has left surface cracks within a few meters of the South West Coast Path. An inspection by Soils and Materials Engineer from Cormac on behalf of Cornwall Council recommended a realignment of the South West Coast Path. Thanks to funds raised by the South West Coast Path Association and from the Unlocking our Coastal Heritage project,the work was completed.
