The Landslip Along Footpath R89

“Due to a landslip in Priory Woods near Nodes Point it has become necessary to close part of the Public Footpath called R89. This will mean that there is no through route between St Helens Duver and Seagrove Bay via Priory Woods using this path and an alterative route will need to be considered. This is likely to be closed for a long time whilst the land stabilises and a diversion can be negotiated.”
