Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 10:53, Wed 18 December 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1894411.

1. Footpaths KM9/KM10 between road at 785546 to SW corner of Preston Wood at 790543 had been cultivated across arable fields and no effort made to restore line of paths. 2. On SE corner of Preston Wood (junction of KM8 and KM20 a double armed fingerpost has been removed from ground and placed in a bush several yards from its correct location. Sign requires resetting in ground at its correct location. Waymarker discs at the same location are misleading, (one pointing into dense woodland).
