Adjacent gates cannot be opened/closed independently. Action needs to be taken to resolve this fault.

Reported in the Gate - Damaged/ Missing category anonymously at 15:30, Thursday 21 May 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2124175.

Farm gate on footpath north of Buston Farm needs to be reinstalled or gate re-hung on the opposite side - one gate obstructs the other so it is very difficult for walkers to close both adjacent gates after going through them. (Alternative suggestion = install a new kissing gate or stile as an additional/separate access to the field so walkers could use that instead of the farm gate?)
