In this section we have put
together a number of lists and location/route guides to help you navigate your
way around the UK Coastal Path system as well as some articles to outline what
you have the opportunity to photograph and also help you overcome some of the
photographic challenges that can present themselves when having to photograph so
much sky, sea and shadow.
We have lists available in this resource
currently which covers some of this, but also have many more in production.
Heritage Coasts - This is a list of the 32 designated Heritage Coasts in
England (as at 2008) and this accounts for 33% of England's Coastline. Our
intention is to expand this list to include other parts of the UK.
- We are attempting to build a list of all Coastal Paths throughout Britain.
We have so far identified 32 of them most of which are the long distance
paths, but there are some shorter ones included. Many of the Long Distance
paths also incorporate or overlap some of the shorter ones. In the same way
you can join the long distance paths together by taking some shorter ones in
National Trust Coastal Walks - Some of the coastline in England and
Wales is owned/managed by the National Trust and they have outlined some
coastal walks where you can take in some of the stunning scenery they
manage. This lists 10 of their walks.
National Trails - There are currently (2008) 15 National Trails in the
UK, three of them are Coastal Paths. This lists all 15 and links to our
location guides for the paths we have covered. We will be adding to this to
complete all 15.
UK National Parks - As at 2008 there are 15 National Parks within the
UK, 10 in England, 3 in Wales and 2 in Scotland. Some of these contain our
Heritage Coastlines and therefore some of our coastal paths will take routes
We are also in the process of building a
much larger list of all walks in the UK which will include many of the
shorter coastal paths. Currently we have 879 walks in this list and once
complete will become part of this section.
