Norfolk Coast path closures and temporary route changes

The Norfolk Coast Path covers 112 miles from the Lincolnshire border in west Norfolk to Hopton-on-Sea in the east.

Trimingham House

The Coast Path has been rerouted through Trimingham House caravan park due to a cliff fall. The new route is waymarked on the ground.

Hemsby - alternative route closure

The cliff top Coast Path route for use at high tide has been lost to coastal erosion.

Hemsby Footpath 2 also known as 'The Marrams' has been lost and is inaccessible, as a result we have now closed the path.

The Norfolk Coast Path along the beach is subject to tides, check local tide information for Hemsby or alternatively call the Met Office on 0370 900 0100 before beginning the route along this section. From where the Coast Path joins the beach you have a 2.3 mile walk to clear the erosion site, please allow enough time to avoid being cut off.

Holme FP13

A diversion is in place around a 50-metre stretch of the Norfolk Coast Path at Holme FP14, due to erosion of the path.

The diversion is clearly signed on the ground and will remain in place until a long-term solution can be found.


The Norfolk Coast Path at Sidestrand has been affected by coastal erosion. The path has therefore been rolled back 4 metres away from the edge of the cliff. 

We request that walkers follow the signs in place along the route.


The Norfolk Coast Path at Happisburgh is under revision due to coastal erosion. The path has been re-routed along a permissive path and a permanent longer-term route is being planned. We request that walkers follow the signs in place along the route.
