Poltesco to Kennack Sands, Lizard: Diversion

Jan 23rd 2018: The Coast Path is currently diverted inland between Poltesco near Cadgwith (Grid Ref: SW 727 157) and Kennack Sands (Grid ref SW 733 164) due to a cliff fall. The diversion adds about ½ mile (1km) to the walk and is up the Poltesco valley and then along lanes past Kuggar to rejoin the Coast Path near Kennack Sands as shown on the map below.

Cornwall Council and the National Trust are looking at ways that the Coast Path can be realigned back closer to the coast.
