Sidmouth, Alma Bridge: Temporary Path Closure

Aug 2019: Devon County Council has temporarily closed a section of the South West Coast Path at Sidmouth.  This is due to works to replace Alma Bridge across the river Sid.  The closure relates to Footpath 120 Sidmouth from The Esplanade to Cliff Road.  This is initially in place for 6 months (from 27 August 2019 to 25 February 2020) but is likely to be extended for an additional 2 months to enable works to be completed.  A diversion is in place using an upstream footbridge and following Riverside Road – Mill Street – Milford Road – Beatlands Road.  This is marked in green on the Plan.
