Osmington, Dorset: Temporary Diversion

March 2020: Dorset Council has temporarily closed a short section of the South West Coast Path National Trail at Osmington.  This is marked using a red line on the map between Point B (grid ref SY720 820) and Point A (grid ref SY723 822).  The temporary closure is due to a land slip along the Path.

A diversion is also shown on the map.  From Point E (grid ref SY710 818) walk in a north easterly direction along the public footpath to Point D (grid ref SY721 828).  Cross the road to use the footway and then cross again to meet the public footpath at Point C (grid ref SY723 828).  Walk along the public footpath in a southerly direction to re-join the Coast Path.  The reverse also applies.

Access to the beach is still available using the permissive steps off the Coast Path adjacent to PGL Osmington Bay adventure centre.
