Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category by CHRIS SHAW at 15:14, Mon 13 November 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 5206262.

The double field gate to Coppicemoor Farm still remains padlocked preventing access to walkers using right of way GW20. This was first reported on 22 July 2023 under FixMyStreet reference 4814851, nearly 4 months since and the matter regarding the landowner has not been resolved. This is an illegal obstruction under the Highways Act 1980. In addition there is no footpath fingerpost sign off the highway - a legal requirement for a signpost to be erected where the path leaves a metalled road under the Countryside Act,1968
