The South West Coast Path Association is a charity that has been looking after the Coast Path for over 45 years.

We were instrumental in establishing the South West Coast Path National Trail (SWCP) in 1978 and have been protecting and improving it ever since. Our work is only possible thanks to the support of our members who stand with us as guardians of this incredible Path, which brings health-giving happiness to millions of people every year.
