Blocked Gateway to right of way

Reported via desktop in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category by CHRIS SHAW at 17:10, Monday 12 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2337790.

The footpath UH18 is blocked by a gate leaning at an angle such that it cannot be climbed over; the footpath sign in the hedgerow alongside is damaged and cannot be seen; the approach to the gate from the minor road (highway) is overgrown (verge). footpaths UH18 and UH5 are not accessible (longshot photo) as crops are right up to hedge line so you cannot walk long them - illegal obstruction . NB: The photo was taken in the autumn but earlier photos taken in summer provided to the writer make footpaths totally inaccessible
