Tenth E9 anniversary at Sandbanks

The 40th anniversary special issue of Strider, the Long Distance Walkers Association journal, mentions that 2012 is also the 10th anniversary of the E9 British section.

The ceremony in 2002 was held at Sandbanks, on the Bournemouth Coast Path, with the ‘opening’ being performed by former Countryside Commission chair John Johnson and European Ramblers president Jan Havelka.

This Plymouth to Dover stretch eventually links to Portugal.

“Not many people have the time to walk E-routes in their entirety,” admits the LDWA in the souvenir issue.
