Nene Valley Way at Kislingbury Overgrown/Impassable

Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 17:42, Thu 22 August 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1741431.

The Nene Valley Way at Kislingbury Overgrown/Impassable on 20-Aug-19. Most local folk take a diversion a few meters to the south towards the Nene as an alternative but is not the official path. Given new paths being constructed now as part of the Upton Country Park extension, it will be a good time to resolve this.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. Northamptonshire Highways are aware of the slight discrepancy on the legal line at the location given. Unfortunately this land is not part of Upton Country Park where the new paths are being constructed by Northampton Borough Council. Northamptonshire Highways will continue to monitor this situation.

  • Thanks for the update. Understand the Upton Country Park extension is not part. Don't understand the comment about the path legal line at the location. Surely the landowner should just clear the way: half an hour with a brushcutter will resolve it, and then join up with the new UCP paths. Or change the NVW direction posts.
