5m wide bridleway reduced to less than 1 meter by brambles

Reported via desktop in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category by Steve Cheeseman at 12:21, Sun 17 July 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3682025.

The majority of the bridleway alongside the quarry plant works and to the Mill has encroaching vegetation, brambles, thistles and branches, including at head height, that make cycling down this greenway difficult. The bridleway is designated at 5m width and 2.5m of the surface was engineered to be a greenway for cycles and disabled access. The vegetation at ground level is destroying the surface and the bramble and branches make cycling hazardous with no room to pass other users.
