Closures and Diversions
The England Coast Path (ECP) remains closed to all traffic between Watchet and Blue Anchor due to a landslip.
We are responsible for maintaining the ECP within the county boundaries and closed the path in the interest of public safety. The landslip has caused part of the path to be lost, as you can see in this image.
Work is ongoing to resolve and reopen the path, however this is complicated by the unstable geology of the area. While this part of the path is closed there is a diversion available between Watchet and Blue Anchor.
While this closure is in place, there is no Right of Way or access following the cliff top between Warren Bay and Blue Anchor and all users are reminded to follow the Countryside Code, including not trespassing in this area, and are requested to follow the diverted route.
For information on the closure please email MDCooper@somerset.gov.uk or phone 01823 358250.
