England Coast Path Comes to Winstred Hundred

Natural England has recently started to look at how access to the Essex coast can be improved as part of the England Coast Path Project.   This project will create a new long-distance trail that, once completed, will allow people to walk around the whole of the English coast.  Once complete, the England Coast Path will bring significant benefits to the coastal economy, providing a vital lifeline for local businesses such as shops, hotels and pubs.

Work has recently started to extend the path along the Essex coast from Burnham-on-Crouch to Manningtree and the project team are now in the process of talking to those who may be affected by the stretch between Salcott and Jaywick which, it is hoped, could be open by the summer of 2018.  There will be opportunities to attend a number of drop-in sessions and anybody interested in the project is invited to attend any of these events:
