Footpath Closure and Diversion

Level Crossing Network Rail announced the proposed closure of the Wrabness Pedestrian Crossing E48 across the railway adjacent to Brakey Grove which affects the public footpath route between Station Road and Wheatsheaf Lane. Essex County Council and Wrabness Parish Council objected to the planned closure of the public footpath route at a Department of Transport public inquiry held during 2018. In 2022 Grant Shapps, the Secretary of State for Transport,  approved the closure with a proposed footpath diversion route. For more information visit the Network Rail website.
