Landowner erected dangerous and hidden barbed wire fence down a narrow, muddy path

Reported via desktop in the Surface is damaged category by Natasha Larkin at 17:58, Sunday 10 March 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Gloucestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5692853.

On the slope down towards the road leading to Upper Redbrook, between the gardens of the large house and the pump room. The landowner has erected an excessive amount of serious barbed wire that's hidden amongst the overgrown trees in parts and far too close to the wooden fence beam so if you were to slip and reach out to grab it, you'd seriously hurt yourself. On the ground, there are 3-4" high sheared metal poles sticking out the ground. Again, partially hidden. Nearest property address I can find is The Elms, NP25 4LH
