The horse/cycle track at the above has been reported to North Yorkshire County Council as overgrown and with potholes. The location, however, appears to be within the A66 Highways England maintenance boundary.

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England regarding the overgrown bridleway.

    The responsibility and ownership of the bridleway after the highway boundary is that of the local authority.

    However, there is a HE owned hedgerow overhanging the bridleway which we will instruct our contractor to trim back. This will be done within the next 6 weeks

    Thank you,
