  • This problem extends all the way to Dunchurch. I went for a run yesterday from Daventry to Dunchurch and it was awful. In some places the grass is waist high and covered by nettles and brambles! My legs were red raw from stinging nettles and ripped by brambles. This is horrendous and this day and age when we're encouraged to be more healthy to either walk, run or cycle and can't fo either on these paths.
