Bog on public footpath. What 3 words= ///barn.soulful.marathons

Reported anonymously at 14:20, Wednesday 12 January 2022

Whilst walking my puppy 11th january in the afternoon I sunk up to my waist in the corner of the field on a public footpath in Potterspury. I was approximately 10m from the stile to exit the field. It looked no different to other patchy wet corners of fields, ankle deep in places then the next step I just sunk into like a boggy puddle upto my waist. I called the emergency services as I couldn't get out and was extremely scared. I called a friend to come and call my puppy away as he was struggling to get out of the bog as well. A man saw us and used some planks of wood and helped to get me out, then we cancelled the fire brigade. (he told me had helped his partner to get out as she had got stuck a few weeks before). I posted on our village facebook page as a warning to any one else who may walk through there, if I had of had a child with me it could have ended in disaster, or if I had of fell over trying to get out. I received quite a few comments stating that various people had also got stuck in this area before and needed people to help them out and that corner of the field is always bad. I am extremely sore today and am scared to think of what could have happened if i hadnt of had my mobile phone with me. I would appreciate this being looked into in a matter of urgency incase another person isnt so lucky to be okay. What 3 words location ///barn.soulful.marathons
