Bridleway blocked by brambles to GR 85158860 and impassable to horses as wraps round legs. Have tried

Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category by Richard Heagerty at 12:11, Tue 23 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1705965.

The bridleway which runs SSE to join with the A6003 at 85758745 was passable earlier in the year. Now, quite thick vegetation has grown up along the strip of wood. This would be passable but it now includes multiple strips of bramble that wrap around the horses legs. My horse who is very forward going first showed obvious pain with arched back and then refused to go further. Will add photos. The stretch NNW from there on the bridleway between the A427 and the unnamed road south of Middleton and Cottingham (84758920 to 84258958) is also poor (overgrown) with single strands of bramble but is currently passable
