About 2,000 people are expected to use a new path up Beeston Hill in its first weekend alone.

The improved path opens to the public on Thursday, March 29 following improvements by Norfolk County Council’s Norfolk Trails team.

A new surface has been put in place along the Norfolk Coast Path from Sheringham to the top of Beeston Hill, also known as Beeston Bump. The summit receives thousands of visitors every month, which has taken its toll on the paths they use to get there.

The path will also protect the sensitive flora by providing a single, high-quality walked route in place of the multiple, badly rutted paths that traversed the site previously.

The work, which has largely been funded by Natural England, has taken six weeks and used 109 tonnes of granite and carstone, which was air-lifted onto the inaccessible site by helicopter – a first for the Norfolk Coast Path.
