Ramblers hoping for Isle of Wight path success

The Ramblers has expressed its hopes that a public consultation on extending the English Coastal Path to the Isle of Wight will show strong enough support for the plan to go ahead.

Although it is regarded as separated from the mainland and therefore not automatically eligible for inclusion, Defra has launched a consultation on the question of a path around the coast.

Ramblers senior policy officer Justin Cooke said: "We hope that the consultation will show how popular this path would be."

The organisation states that trying to walk around the coast of the island at present is a frustrating affair, with many routes diverted inland, interrupted or running beside busy roads.

People who like to go walking on the island may have experienced the Isle of Wight Walking Festival, the lagest annual walking event of its kind in the UK.

This year's event includes over 60 walks over the weekend of October 26th-29th.
