  • On 28 May 2023 gate latch still broken. The handle has been tied to the gate but does not work the mechanism. There is limited space to manoeuvre here therefore with a horse riders may well dismount and then stand on the field gate to remount which will damage the other gate over time. Please repair/replace the handle/mechanism.

  • This is still broken. Worse someone has tied it up with string in a way tgat means it’s difficult to.close the gate without getting your bridle caught up in it.

    Please can you update with regards to a time to fix the mechanism on the gate
