Flooding closes South West Coastpath at Budleigh Salterton
Posted on: 14 September 2018
The south west coast path along the River Otter between Budleigh Salterton Lime Kiln car park and White Bridge, on South Farm Road, has been temporarily closed with immediate effect.
High tide this morning (Friday 14 September) and a failed culvert has led to flooding on the cricket pitch which has subsequently damaged the public footpath.
Council contractors have closed off the path from the White Bridge and car park ends and the path will remain closed until the flooded area recedes and repairs are made.
An alternative route is available via the footpath parallel to Granary Lane to the west of the Cricket Club.
