Farmer Diverted path

Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 13:29, Sat 30 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 1869156.

Farmer has diverted footpath HW6 so it now goes around his property, instead of through the farmyard. Notices state it is because of mud and dangerous machinery. Farm located at SP7307 6390 and the diversion takes the path to join with footpath HW44. Seems like footpath has been diverted for a while.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. Public Bridleway HW6 was inspected on 2/12/19. A letter has been sent to the relevant landowner requesting that the existing signs are removed within the next 30 days. The legal line of this route was found to be open and usable. The landowner has been made aware that alternative signs may be placed on site simply stating 'alternative permissive route available'.
