Gate unsuitable for bridleway

Reported via desktop in the Gate - Damaged/ Missing category anonymously at 15:57, Tuesday 26 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2502774.

The gate is chained about 50 cm above ground level so could not be opened by a mounted rider. It should be able to be opened and closed one handed. The gate is close to the road therefore dismounting would not be a safe option and there are no means to remount. The surface around the gate is waterlogged and slippery (on the same day the gateway opposite had a good surface).
