The North Down Coastal Path near Seahill
The bridge at Seahill, installed in 2015 and a fantastic improvement to this section of the path (see J4482 : Coastal path improvements, Helen's Bay - May 2015(1), J4482 : North Down Coastal Path and J4482 : North Down Coastal Path for context). It has aged well and nature has been allowed to reclaim the previous route over the rocks above.
The North Down Coastal Path

The North Down Coastal Path extends for some 16 miles between Holywood and Orlock in north County Down. Although it has always been possible to walk the entire route along the shoreline, prior to 1970 much of the area was still in private ownership. In the 1960s, the government, local councils and National Trust worked to together to get the path fully accessible and opened to all. This included, in many places, extensive works to create concrete and tarmac routes over what was the natural environment between Holywood and Bangor. Beyond Bangor it remains much wilder and unspoilt, particularly on the sections at Ballymacormick Point and Orlock. It was formally opened in 1971.
