Be aware there are several diversions and route closures due to landslips as at 27 Dec 2021

The steps at Shanklin Chine are closed and barricaded at both ends, so take a road route to the A3055 and back down to Luccombe Village.

There are also signed diversions on The Landslip at Dunnose, at Bonchurch, and a major diversion away from Brightstone Holiday Complex.

Planing a possible double lap of this on the 15/16/17 July 2022.

I did submit a route with info for the double lap but did not have a response. Providing I complete the double lap will I just need to submit my report and state it is a double lap for it to be added to this page?
