Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2358268.
There is a public footpath over the farmland behind the houses on Ashby Road, Welton and I have noticed the style/barrier preventing motorbikes/pushbikes/horses has been damaged and is no longer effective.

Thanks for reporting this a site visit has been made and it would appear that the barrier has been missing for some time. As the field is arable and no livestock being controlled there is no reason for a barrier to be in place, if stock was ever to be put in the field then a gate could be authorised but this would be at the land owner expense as the majority of stiles and gate on public rights of way are landowner responsibility to repair and maintain.
