Path diversion: Talland Bay, near Looe

Update: 31st January 2014

The section of South West Coast Path between Talland Bay, (Stinker Cove) eastwards to the National Trust boundary at Hendersick has been closed since early January 2013 due to risk of a landslip triggered by the recent heavy rain (there was a substantial landslip here late in 2012). Until the ground restabilises, the path is closed, and walkers should follow the signed diversion as shown on the map below.

In addition on the 30th January, due to signs of an imminent cliff fall to the west of Talland Bay this section of path has also been diverted, via the Talland to Polperro road to rejoin the Coast Path near Downend Point. This route is signed on the ground.

  • A Dartmoor Pony grazes on the South West Coast Path at Rame Head, Cornwall. The chapel on the distinctive conical headland is said to have its origins in medieval times and as with many such places is dedicated to St Michael, patron saint of high places. At one time Rame Chapel and the parish of Rame were gifted to Tavistock Abbey, meaning that until the modern era Rame was technically part of Devon!
