This obstruction is on f.p. HH19 that runs off of Oakley Road Pipewell.. The track leading down to Abbey House,Pipewell is not on the correct alignment, but this is not the main concern. Just before the iron gates to the house,it goes sharp left and on the right is a laurel hedge and the offending flower bed.You can deviate around the obstructions, but the lady of the house was very agitated, but her husband was more polite. He said he was going to get the path diverted.It never happened. This has been ongoing for many years,even the new owners knew about it.
