Route Changes

East Coast of Isle of Portland - Path reopened

Update: July 2017: The path has now been reopened.

May 2017: Rufus Castle to East Weare, Isle of Portland. Due to a cliff fall that has broken a sewage pipe, the Coast Path running between Rufus Castle (Grid Ref: SY 702724) and East Weare (Grid Ref: SY 699 714) has been closed until Wessex Water are able to undertake repairs. As a result, walkers are being diverted onto the higher parallel cliff path as shown on the map below. The diversion route is a similar length, retains good coastal views, and will take about the same time to walk.

The blue line shows the diverted route and the red line shows the closed route.
