Step on to the Seaford Head Coastal Path

Submitted on 06 July 2018 by STC Officers

Seaford Town Council offers its sincerest gratitude to the volunteers of South Downs National Park Authority who, undeterred by the seering July heatwave, installed some much-needed new steps on one of the entrances to the Seaford Head Coastal Path, by The View, at the base of Seaford Head.

The volunteers worked with the Council’s Head Greenkeeper to dig out and install natural looking steps, which have already been well received by the many walkers that frequent this area on a daily basis.

The footpath takes you from The View and Seaford Head Golf Course straight on to the Seaford Head Coastal Path; either taking on the exhilarating trek up Seaford Head or down to the very eastern end of the seafront, joining at Splash point, where The Shoal community bench is now situated. Or indeed vice-versa for those looking for refreshments after a coastal walk – The View is just two minutes walk from the path, with plenty on offer for all.

The new steps being in situ now means the path can be used all year round and is much more accessible to many people. As always, the Council urges any users of the coastal path to show the necessary caution on chalk cliffs, not going within 5 metres of the cliff edge.

The Town Council offers its thanks to the volunteers; David Ashton, Martin Bridle, Steve Brookman, Jennifer Butchers, Liddy Davidson, Aled Evans, Stephen Taylor and Mick Woolgar.
