England Coast Path

The England Coast Path is being developed by Natural England, in partnership with local access authorities. It will be a 2,700 mile National Trail, the longest walking route in the world, and is being opened gradually in sections.

East Sussex County Council and South Downs National Park Authority will manage the sections through East Sussex.
