With the Welsh Coastal Path set to open this weekend, the Ramblers is redoubling efforts to ensure England gets one too.
From this weekend, Wales will be the first country in the world whose whole coastline can be walked in one continuous pathway, but many in the outdoors community are concerned that the government has pushed an English equivalent down its list of priorities.
But the Ramblers and the British Mountaineering Council have issued a petition that they hope will show the depth of feeling among the public.
Those who want to go walking
along parts of the English coast can already enjoy a number of long-distance paths, such as the South-West Coastal Path.
Stretching for 630 miles from Poole to Minehead, it encompasses the whole of the Devon and Cornwall coasts, plus part of the Dorset and Somerset shorelines.
Of this, 55 km (34 miles) lies in the Exmoor National Park.
