Byway CF8 gate too narrow, hedge overgrown, barbed wire

Reported via desktop in the Gate - Damaged/ Missing category anonymously at 12:53, Thursday 13 January 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3237853.

The gate to the byway is difficult to open on horseback due to the narrow space, proximity of barbed wire and overgrown vegetation. A gate on a byway is recommended to be 3m in width. Barbed wire should not be used within 1m of the gate, either side. Hedge should be cut back to remove obstruction.
