YOU SAID, WE DID - Public Footpaths & Access

A number of people have reported that the drawbridge over the canal near lock 9 (at the top of the fields accessed from the bottom of North Street) has been removed making the footpath incomplete unless you use the locks.Rothersthorpe Parish Council have been in touch with the Canal's Trust and have been informed that both bridges (second one in line with the Jaguar garage) failed health and safety inspections so are being replaced.This is taking longer as they are listed and any design is subject to approval from the Heritage team to ensure they are in keeping with the original look. In the mean time investigations are being made as to how a temporary bridge across the overflow could be put in place to make access easier. We will update you when we have further information.In the meantime please remember if you have any concerns about the footpaths around Rothersthorpe you can report them on FixMyStreet.com
