Bridle path is very overgrown.

Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 22:43, Thursday 4 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1685144.

Bridle path is very overgrown making it unsafe to use as so close to canal, two fallen trees cross path as well. I believe the bridle way shouldn’t be that close to the canal but over the years as the trees have grown its pushed the path far too close to canal. It will cause a serious accident to both horse and rider.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. This Bridleway was inspected on 10-7-19. A letter has been sent to the relevant landowner requesting the sidegrowth vegetation and overhanging trees are cut back. An update regarding this issue will be provided once the landowner has responded. Further to our on-going correspondence, I can confirm that the landowner has now carried out the major clearance works required on this Public Bridleway. Northamptonshire Highways have raised a worksheet to carry out some further clearance to increase the width of the route as much as possible. We will also try to reduce the height of some of the tree stumps that have been left on site.
