Footpath sign missing and route obstructed and overgrown.

Reported anonymously at 08:28, Tue 9 November 2021

Whilst out walking this weekend we were unable to use the above footpath. The first thing we noticed was the 'footpath' sign on Ecton Lane was missing or not visible as it has been in the past. We then spotted a sign on the stile which read 'guard dog, enter at your own risk'. Once through the first small paddock we noticed that someone had erected a small post and wire fence down the side of the next field, presumably to channel any walkers, not put off by the dog warning, down the side of the field and not a little over where the footpath appears to be on the OS maps. This wouldn't have been a problem apart from the fact that the fenced off section hasn't been maintained in any way and was completely over grown and impassable so that we had to turn back the way we came.
