Totally obstructed stile

Reported via desktop in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 12:13, Sunday 19 June 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3607297.

The crop in the field to the east of the location has not been sprayed out (nor was it last year) and the stile at the location is completely blocked with hawthorn and nettles to the point that it is impassable. Use of the RoW network is a balance, and I understand that at this time of year there is often a bramble shoot or nettle to deal with, but whoever is responsible for this field and stile is just not taking responsibility at all.
