PRoW FP5 Access Blocked

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3010910.
According to your DM and the OS Map, PRoW issues onto Elkington Rd at the junction with Tarry's End. OS Grid Ref SP 59997 75786. I walked here yesterday but couldn't find any way through the hedge or indeed any waymarking or fingerpost. I had to access the PRoW by entering the field further down Tarry's End. Not sure if the route of the path has been relocated nearer the riding school but there appears to be an unofficial path visible on the ground from that vicinity.

Thanks for reporting this we have made a site visit and also looked at the definitive map and it would appear that you are correct on the legal line of the path however there is lots of evidence showing that the path does not take this line and does start further down Tarrys Lane, there is a very old stile and also fingerpost that probably dates back 40 years. We were also unable to find any evidence that a stile or gate ever existed at the stat of Tarry Lane, therefore with all of this we will now be contacting our definitive map team to look into this further and may lead DMMO to put the path on the route that is currently being used and has been used for many years. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
