Pathway too narrow, damaged and worn away.

Reported in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 16:39, Tuesday 20 August 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 1738696.

I reported this pathway into the village from the A508 as dangerous several years ago. Nothing was done and since then it has got worse and is now an accident waiting to happen. The vegetation has completely encroached on the path meaning the path is too narrow to walk down. The pathway has completely crumbled away, causing you to stumble into the road. I walk down with my son and have to ask my son to walk in the road facing oncoming traffic at 60mph because its safer than the path. This is totally unacceptable and prevents us from walking into our own village. The path was bad when we arrived 8 years ago and has got significantly worse. It was repaired at the bottom by the farm but the top leading down from the A508, which is far worse was ignored.
