Footpath closures are to be implemented in the South Wight as Blackgang Chine plan to hold their famous firework displays for 3 evenings throughout August, starting tonight (Wednesday).
Blackgang Chine will host their firework finale on Wednesday evenings – 12th, 19th and 26th August – sometime between 20:00 and 22:00 – when the sky becomes dark enough.
In the event of inclement weather, meaning the display cannot proceed, they will move the display to the next Friday night.
In the interests of public safety, 2 public footpaths are to be closed by the Isle of Wight Council; 1 that crosses Blackgang’s field to join with Blackgang Road (called C11) and 1 which forms part of the coastal path and follows the cliff edge (called C11a).
In the past, Blackgang Chine staff will escort walkers through the closed sections before the firing starts, to minimise disruption.
The display will last around 10 minutes.
