Porthleven to Penrose new coast path appeal

This winter, part of the South West Coast Path between Porthleven and Penrose in Cornwall fell into the sea following intense storms in January. A much loved part of the coast path, there’s an estimated cost of £30,000 to re-instate the route by autumn 2018. Here is how you can help.

Restoring the coast path

  • It costs £50 per metre to re-build
  • It will then cost £1,200 per year to maintain the new section of coast path
