Teignmouth to Holcombe, Devon: Temporary Path Closure

May 2020: Devon County Council have temporarily closed part of the South West Coast Path between Spray Point and Holcombe from Monday 18th May to Sunday 7th June (inclusive).  This is for public safety reasons whilst urgent repair works are carried out to the sea wall by contractors working on behalf of Network Rail.  This temporary closure applies to Footpath No. 12, Dawlish as marked by the red dotted line on the plan.

The works area can be bypassed using the beach at low tide.  Alternatively, a slightly inland route can be taken using East Cliff Walk – Teignmouth Footpath 5, 5a and Dawlish Footpath 23 – pavement along Teignmouth Road / A379 as marked blue on the plan (the reverse also applies).
