Weighted bridlegate causing impossible safe passage on horseback

Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 20:54, Mon 29 July 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1712802.

Weighted bridlegate at start of ER9 at Snorscombe Farm impeding safe passage through on horseback to access the bridlepath through the field up to Mantles Heath. It has a quick return. British Horse Society do not advise weighted gates because of safety factor. Also, wooden 5 bar gate closeby in the hedgeline cannot be opened on horseback as the catch is very stiff - therefore this route is not accessible at the moment. Thank you
