Have just seen a piece on BBC news website stating that Marine Drive is temporarily closed due to a four and a half ton rock fall which occurred Thursday afternoon.

Local authority saying they will clear up and re open asap but no estimate given as yet.

Just thought I'd post to save anyone a wasted journey, hopefully a forumite with local knowledge will be able to update with information about reopening.

Going up tomorrow will let you all know, I think if you go via the summit then cut across and down past the church its OK? Been NE this week so no need to go around.

Any news?

I tried to get up there on the 20th but was stopped because there had been a rock fall.

Top road was closed too and they weren't even letting walkers through.

Planning on going this Thursday.

Can you let us know Jon?

Mark Abbotts and Ron Broughton have gone up there today. We had a great day on Thursday. Road was open. The big fall had been right at the end of Marine drive. Lots of new mesh on the cliffs round there now.
