Some of you might remember the walk around Meonstoke and Corhampton organised by Jo Hallet and Jorg Boulton for 26th March 2018.
I took some photos and, when I got home, created a free account at the Hampshire rights of way web site, and reported the problem. The photos I submitted are on the right (click them to see a larger version).
It's taken almost exactly a year, but I just got the following from the Rights of Way team:
This report has been resolved to our satisfaction and has now been closed. A kissing gate has been installed here by Waltham Ramblers Volunteer Group. Thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding this issue.
So, it's worth taking the trouble to report problems.
I've sent a note to Waltham Ramblers to thank them for their efforts.
