Footpath signpost on the coast path
Footpath signpost on the coast path
The coast path joins Landcombe Lane, which I think must have been the coast road until the mid-C19; the current A379 between Street and Blackpool is not shown on the first edition of the OS 1" map. What the current 1:25000 map shows, and which the signpost fails to recognise, is that the lane is used by the E9 European long distance path. LinkExternal link suggests that it should coincide with the SWCP, so perhaps the map hasn't quite caught up with the fact that the latter was rerouted in 2005.

Landcombe Lane is shown in the two images at LinkExternal link .
