The stinging nettles are so high they blow across the path and have stung my son today. I was stung at the weekend in the same place. They are between the turn to Crow Hill/Addington and Finedon Road in Irthlingborough

  • Thank you for your response. I cycled along the pathway last weekend and the trees are very low hanging too and dangerous to a cyclist. I trust these will be dealt with at the same time?
