Badly damaged stile

Reported in the Stile-Damaged/Missing category anonymously at 10:58, Mon 24 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 2017851.

The double stile at this hedge line is not fit for purpose and needs replacing. It is quite dangerous as users have to balance on a very narrow strip of wood which serves also as one step board, the other being badly damaged. More sturdy and user friendly stiles are required or ideally the present furniture should be replaced with gate(s).
