Dangerously overgrown bridleway
Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 15:38, Friday 3 January 2020
Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1916853.
This bridleway is nearly inpassable. I had to squeeze my large horse between fence and unkept hedge and caught my boot on the fence which is nearly on the floor. This is potentially very dangerous.
I approached a lady who was tending her horses and was told the owner just says its been like that for a long time so she wont do anything about it. I don't know who owns it.
The first part of the bridleway coming off the field is well maintained.
