Broxhead Common, Hampshire BW 54
Charlotte Hunt writes to Mrs Noyce, Hampshire County Council
"This is an unauthorised obstruction to the bridleway and has been in a dangerous condition for many years as it sticks in the sand and cannot be opened fully."
Says Charlotte Hunt
While riding my horse on BW54 Broxhead Common yesterday, I had to turn back because of the gate.
