King Charles III England Coast Path

Latest update

The Cheshire section of what will become the King Charles III England Coast Path has been completed after recent improvements works and is now open for visitors to enjoy this beautiful part of the borough.

Background

The Council was asked to improve the borough's existing coastal path between the Flintshire and Wirral borders. Most of the construction took place from Marshlands Road, Neston up to Parkgate, following on the previous work from the Flintshire border to Neston in 2012.

The King Charles III England Coast Path will be longest managed coastal path in the world. It will go all the way around the coast of England and will be around 2,700 miles long when it is complete.

The Council received a grant from Natural England earlier in the year to carry out initial planning work and funding for the full construction costs was then secured from DEFRA through Natural England.

This will be section BHW3 of the King Charles III England Coast Path.

There was only a short window for construction work along this route January to March 2024 due to environmental and ecological factors on this Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Stone has been used along this section as it will stabilise the embankment and futureproof the route, as it will be hardwearing against the coastal terrain / tidal waters and will not wash away. It is worth noting that no material is being removed from site and it has been discussed with the landowner (RSPB) and Natural England, who were keen for this to be retained on the marshes along the route, this also helps aid the sustainability, ecology and carbon neutral elements of the scheme.

In the future information boards will be erected along the route to provide information about the SSSI.
