Obstructed by wire fence

Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 16:34, Monday 6 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2188378.

The line of public footpath KX 13 (Blisworth -Collingtree) has been fenced on either side by contractors where it crosses land designated for Roxhills Rail Freight Depot (believed work started test drilling). At map ref. 746547 legal ROW turns north along surfaced FARM TRACK However here, fencing directs walkers on a PARALLEL route to the farm track. along rough field and not along the track. To keep to the correct line it would be necessary to climb over (or through) the fencing to reach the farm track! (The fencing is approx. shoulder high.) No gate or stile is provided. A waymarker disc can be seen close to the obstruction.
