Right of Way almost totally obstructed by overgrown brambles.

Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 15:05, Sun 15 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 5 minutes later. ref: 1768040.

Right of Way has not been maintained for a long time judging by the amount of brambles and nettles. My wife and I walked this footpath on !5 September 2019 for the first time in several years so I am unable to say how long it has been like this. We both sustained scratches from the vegetation.

  • Attempted to walk this footpath with the dog this afternoon and it is still extremely overgrown with brambles and nettles. Very difficult and a health and safety concern to anyone wishing to use this public footpath.
