Ferrybridge: Short Diversion
April 2021: This updates information first published in October 2018. An Order (as issued by Dorset Council) under Section 14  of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984, as amended remains in place to temporarily close a short section of the Coast Path at Ferrybridge due to cliff erosion. This is for a distance of approximately 900 metres between grid reference SY 658 767 and grid reference SY 666 762 (marked A to B in red on the map below). This closure is needed due to the footpath being unstable and falling away towards the sea.
A diversion is in place as marked using a blue line on map below. At point A turn north east and walk for 590m along footpath S1/73 to point D (Grid Ref SY 663 770). Then head south east for 760m along footpath S1/75 and south along Portland Road for 115m to point C (Grid Ref SY 667 763). Then turn south west along Footpath S1/74 for 100m to point B (Grid Ref SY 666 762). The reverse route applies.
