Footpath overgrown/too narrow and uneven. A major safety hazard

Reported in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 23:40, Fri 23 August 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 5 minutes later. ref: 1742776.

The footpath from the A508 down Rookery Lane is a major safety hazard. It is very narrow and uneven. It is almost impossible to push a pushchair down the path without going on the road and very easy to trip/ turn an ankle. There is also no street lighting so when walking at night into Stoke Bruerne from the A508 you are forced to walk on the road due to the uneven surface of the footpath.
