Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2115990.
Large gate into field locked. Narrow gate beside it can’t get horse through also will only open a foot as post with electric cables has been hammered in behind it to prevent it being opened so no access for cyclists or pushchairs etc.

I found the same problem, its on a bridleway and if I had a horse then I wouldn’t be able to get through the large gate. The small gate is indeed restricted by a post, I can fit through the gap but a larger person or a disabled person wouldn’t be able to.
