Barbed wire wrapped around gate on public right of way

Reported via Android in the Countryside Paths / Public Rights of Way (usually not tarmac) category anonymously at 15:42, Sun 4 November 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

The top bar on this gate on a public right of way has been wrapped with barbed wire. This is a potential hazard, particularly if a person was trying to get out in a hurry as the gate is chained shut (though not padlocked) and the fields either side are used to graze cattle. In addition if approaching the gate from the Kingston Blount side there are no signs indicating that this is the right of way, and the chain and barbed wire discourage people from following the right of way.

  • Barbed wire still wrapped around the top bar. Easy to get caught on when closing and securing gate. However there is now an electric fence strung across the right of way as well!
