Isle of Wight Council

The council's Rights of Way Team has today (Tuesday) had to close part of the public footpath in Shepherds Chine, Atherfield, which forms part of the coastal path route. Unfortunately, the land is unstable and is slipping and the beach access steps have been washed out of position and pushed a long way up into the chine. Once the land has stabilised the path will be reinstated and the steps put back in place. In the meantime the diversion route will be Public Footpath BS2 alongside the boundary of the old holiday camp, Military Road and Public Footpath SW25.
