West Bay: Temporary Path Closure

June 2019: Dorset Council has temporarily closed a section of the South West Coast Path at West Bay (as marked A to B in red on the Plan below).  This is due to the flood defence works at the bottom of East Cliff, being co-ordinated by the Environment Agency.  Works are estimated to last for 14 days from 03/06/19. The Path will be closed for health and safety reasons and to allow machinery access to the base of the cliff.  With support from the golf club, a temporary alternative route has been agreed which heads north from point B, on the map below, joining footpath W7/17. This route will be waymarked with ‘COASTPATH DIVERSION’ way markers. The reverse route also applies.
