Path closures and temporary route changes

The Norfolk Coast Path runs from Hunstanton in west Norfolk round to Hopton-on-Sea in the east.

Originally, the trail ended at Cromer but the opening of Norfolk’s first stretch of England Coast Path extended the Norfolk Coast Path down to Hopton.

Temporary changes

Happisburgh and Cart Gap

Following recent cliff falls between Happisburgh and Cart Gap, the Norfolk Coast Path remains open, but please follow any instructions provided by local signs and always remain inland of any barriers.  North Norfolk District Council's coastal engineers are monitoring the situation closely in the interest of public safety


Due to unsafe steps leading to the beach at Bacton, the Norfolk Coast Path follows the England Coast Path alternative route along the beach to the sea wall at Cable Gap Holiday Park.

Waymarking is in place for the alternative route.
