Our Projects - Sharrow Steps, Whitsand Bay

Sharrow Steps is on the access path which runs from the South West Coast Path and Cornwall Council car-park down to the beach at Sharrow. This is a very popular beach with has a seasonal RNLI lifeguard presence in summer. As such the condition of these steps is critical. The previous steps were around 20 years old. The proximity to the sea and level of wear caused by walkers had led to serious corrosion of the step treads. Many treads had holes in the plates which were patched and in an unsatisfactory condition. Without replacement there would, in a short period of time, this path would need to be closed.
