The Isle of Wight Council have advised that the stretch of cliff running behind Brighstone Holiday Centre is no longer safe to use.

As a result, Public Footpath BS59 – part of the Isle of Wight’s coastal path – has been closed.

To bypass this point, pedestrians will need to divert via Military Road by walking along the roadside berge between Isle of Wight Pearl and Grange Chine.

A landslip at Totland has resulted in the closure of Public Footpath T16 this week. This is also part of the coastal path.
