Cliff Falls Close Coastal Paths near Weymouth

Coastal footpaths in the Castle Cove and Bincleaves areas Weymouth have been closed to walkers due to cliff falls.
The access path to the beach at Castle Cove has been closed as the cliff adjacent to the steps has failed and cracks are showing in the steps themselves.
Following a cliff fall the path at Bincleaves from the open space above the Western Ledges is also closed.
The main coast path in the Castle Cove and Bincleaves area (which was moved inland several years ago due to landslips) is unaffected, it's just the paths directly near the cliffs.
Weymouth and Portland Borough Council and Dorset County Council are seeking to establish alternative access to Castle Cove and will monitor the situation at both sites.
