Very overgrown Bridleway

Reported via desktop in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category by Neil Holman at 14:40, Friday 20 August 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2948290.

I have never seen this bridleway so overgrown. A few years go it was properly cut back and a hardcore surface put down. I tried to ride down it on my bicycle Wednesday evening (18th August 2021) only to be grabbed by overhanging brambles resulting in more brambles wrapping around my front wheel & handlebars resulting in me stopping suddenly and falling into a bed of brambles cutting up both my arms & legs. The overgrown vegatation is the full length of the track and needs really cutting back. Talking to come local walkers & other cyclists they said it has been like that for 2 months +
