Unsuitable gates for a bridleway

Reported via desktop in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category by christopher hodgson at 16:12, Tuesday 5 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2462860.

On this bridleway there are numerous gates on the stretch from Arbury Hill to the Hellidon/Catesby road which are a hazard for riders. On some the catches are very low while on the one adjacent to the old Central Railway line, it is necessary for the horse/pony to jump the bottom bar! As far as I am aware, this has been a problem since Spring 2020

  • These gates are weighted and extremely hard to open on foot let alone on horse back. New horse friendly catch needed on gate on concrete by barn leading up to hellidon road.
