Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 12:14, Mon 10 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 7 minutes later. ref: 1654532.

The first gate is at bottom of Thorpe Underwood Road on a small bridge leading into the Bridleways to Harrington and Arthingworth, the 2nd and 3rd photos are of gate between 2 arable fields. This has deep ditches either side and is impossible to open on horseback. Many years ago there was a gate here, which was removed following a report to yourselves as it was deemed unnecessary and inaccessible.
