Starting on the beach at East Runton, this walk encompasses West Runton. West Runton is a Geological Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and site of the discovery of the fossilised bones of a 600,000-year-old mammoth in 1990. Ascending via the boat slipway at West Runton onto the cliffs, the beautiful sea views from Beeston Regis cliffs can be enjoyed before climbing towards the woods at Roman Camp. Returning through the pretty village of East Runton, you can find refreshment in a number of pubs and cafes.

Please note that any coastal path may be prone to erosion. This walk was updated and amended in February 2008 due to severe erosion. If further erosion occurs do not take risks. Please make your own safety your first consideration and inform us so that we can add further warnings to the walk. Thank you to Roy Davenport for all his help with the updating of this walk.

A terrific walk from start to finish, a couple of hours well spent. The first mile along the beach is probably unachievable at high tide as there is so much debris in the way of collapsed cliff. That said the piles of rock and earth are rather amazing. All instructions still good. Car Park is now £5 so we found off street parking for free, this might be difficult in good weather. Walk measures in at 6.5 miles.
