Path ploughed up

Reported via desktop in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 12:30, Thu 8 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2331698.

On Wednesday 7 October 2020 I was walking from Rectory Farm to Holcot via footpath CW1 when I found the line of the path very difficult to walk, follow and navigate due to recent ploughing. The same path was used on 8 May 2020 when it was also in a similar condition. In view of the fact that the farmer (identity unknown) has not restored the path in anywhere near the time allowed (14 day statutory restoration period) I now ask if he could be contacted and advised accordingly. I have reported similar problems in this field on several occasions during recent years.
