Field footpath obstructed by electric fence.

Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category by John Gibbins at 23:05, Sun 13 September 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2292889.

I could not manage to mark the exact location on the map, the problem occurs on the footpath just as you proceed past the back of the farmhouse just as you enter the field before the top of the hill. This public footpath is obstructed by an electric fence. It can be detatched but some people are scared to touch it. The warning sign is also faded. I do not believe that this arrangement is appropriate across a footpath and there should be a proper gate.
