Maypole House, West Street, Horncastle LN9 5AE

Reported via mobile in the Tree/hedge restricting available highway category anonymously at 20:57, Mon 20 November 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 479652.

Large low hanging tree branch, overhanging brick wall of property of Maypole House and public footpath caused me to walk into the branch.

I sustained a 3 cm long cut on my forehead.

Other people who were present at the time remarked that it's a public hazard.

  • Trees also overhang the road and cause large vehicles to swerve into oncoming traffic on a blind bend. Trees need severe pruning all round!
