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.
Thank you for reporting a fault. We will use the information you have provided to assess and prioritise this fault in accordance with our published response times for fault reports.

Thanks for reporting this a site visit has been made, the barbed wire has been removed and overhanging vegetation above the gate. There is sufficient room to be able to manoeuvre a horse, open the gate and go through.
