Rangers getting stuck into footpath repairs near to Bull Point, Woolacombe

Footpath work for visitor access

Along the coast from Woolacombe, through Mortehoe and on to Ilfracombe there are many miles of coastal footpaths. All of these and their associated paths to the beach need to be constantly maintained. This work varies from rebuilding steps washed away by winter storms to resurfacing eroded footpaths and cutting grass during the summer.
