Dangerous access to the bridge from the east side

Reported in the Bridge-Damaged/ Missing category anonymously at 16:22, Thu 26 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1782112.

The bridle way to this bridge is too narrow allowing only about 4ft for a horse to negotiate the bridge. It is about an 8ft drop off the access into the brook. the access is also on a turn and animals using the brook have eroded the side of the path. There is another ditch on the other side of the path leaving only about 4 ft for a horse to get through. This is highly dangerous and does not meet the required standards for safe passage. Your urgent attention is required.
