North-West Coastal Trail

1400 km / 870 miles

Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire, Merseyside
For information only, this path is under development and no route or publication is available as yet.

The path is the brainchild of the North West Coastal Forum and would run from Chester to Carlisle. It is being touted as a major economic attraction, though its mixture of history and natural beauty is its unique draw. From start to finish, the trail would be 1,400km (870 miles).

Natural Economy North West is an amalgam of interested parties from Natural England to the RSPB. It includes the Forestry Commission, water company United Utilities, Friends of the Lake District and the National Trust. Its programme director Will Williams said: ?The trail will take a path that looks over internationally important sites such as St Bees Head, a stunning, designated Heritage Coast that is home to the only English colony of black guillemots. The Solway, Mersey and Ribble estuaries, home to more rare bird and marine life, would also be covered by the trail, as would the rich industrial heritage of sea ports such as Liverpool and Fleetwood."
