Bridleway overgrown and narrow

Reported via mobile in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 19:02, Tuesday 4 January 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3215993.

This section of bridleway has gradually become very overgrown with brambles and hedge seedlings etc especially on the left hand side going down the hill. The fence between the field and bridleway is also becoming overgrown and will inevitably lead to a narrowing of passage from both sides as growth continues in the warmer months. The fence has barbed wire strands along its length and could be a potential hazard if users wish to pass each other and have to pass closer to it in order to do so. The route is reduced now to approx 1 meter in places, instead of the recommended 3m.
