The entire length of the route is flat, however a short alternative route can be taken to reach Reculver Towers and Fort with a steep 25% climb and descent
The only benches along the route are near the start in Minnis Bay.
This is a lovely sea walk, that is particularly refreshing during the summer months. Along the walk from Minnis Bay to Reculver there is plenty to see as you pass a salt-water lagoon, a working oyster farm, and the Reculver Towers and fort.
The walk follows the Viking Coastal Trail, and mainly uses the concrete surfaced sea-wall. It is a linear walk of 3.7 miles (6km) one-way, or 7.4 miles (12km) returning to the start. There is a visitor centre at Reculver.
Reculver towers is a striking pair of 12th century church towers built within a Roman fort on the very edge of the Wantsum Channel. The towers, known as 'The Two Sisters', were erected on the foundation of a 7th century Saxon church. The 12th century church is gone now, the victim of erosion from the constant wear and tear of waves on this seaside location.
The Roman fort of Regulbium was built here by the Emperor Carausius in the 3rd century. The striking twin towers of a 12th century church stand within the boundaries of the Roman foundations.
Close by is The Spitfire & Hurricane Memorial Museum is situated on the site of one of the very few surviving airfields that played a key role in the epic “Battle of Britain”. Splendid examples of these two types of Second World War fighter aircraft, together with the superb “Battle of Britain” tapestry, are permanently housed at Manston.
