OSM Map | Definitive Statement | PRoW GIS Data (GeoJSON) | OSM Highways (GeoJSON)

1 FP 1160 1176 +1.4% 4 6y   MZ OT TL89SW N Route stops as a dead end on the STANTA boundary at TL82419332.
2 RB 2013 2080 +3.3% 4 6y   MZ OT TL89SW
3 RB 2602 2628 +1.0% 4 4w   MZ OT TL89SW
4 BR 588 579 −1.5% 4 8y   MZ OT TL88NW D Listed in Definitive Statement as BR, but has the same description as RB 5. Recorded in GIS data as BR along Little Ouse north from Santon Road.
5 RB 2274 2294 +0.9% 4 2y   MZ OT TL88NW O The section NW of St Helen's picnic site is immediately adjacent to the railway, rather than following the track further away. The route immediately adjacent to the railway is not accessible.
6 FP 256 24 −90.6% 4 2y   MZ OT TL88NW D O The Definitive Map and GIS data show the path continuing over (half of) a footbridge at TL82548727. This is a 20m or so away from the location of the actual footbridge. The bridge is in the wrong place. The definitive line goes through the St Helen's monument site, and is therefore obstructed by the perimeter fence. It's easy enough to divert around it, but the route should be officially diverted.
7 RB 266 262 −1.5% 4 13m   MZ OT TL88NW
Totals   9159 9043 98.7%              

Table Details: To be counted in the table above, OSM ways need to be tagged with an appropriate designation=* tag (one of public_footpath, public_bridleway, restricted_byway, byway_open_to_all_traffic) and the relevant prow_ref=* tag (in the form 'Lynford XX 12a', where XX is one of FP, BR, RB, BY; and 12 is the route number, and a is an optional suffix letter). The Mapping Status values in the table are: −1 Route should not exist; 0 Unverified; 1 Un-mapped; 2 Partially mapped; 3 Complete, but with significant deviation from definitive line; 4 Complete; 5 Complete, with adjacent field boundaries and stiles, gates etc. These values are manually maintained, so my not be up to date.

Map Details: On the map, the Yellow (FP), Blue (BR), Magenta (RB) and Red (BY) lines are Rights of Way from official Council data from 2023‑09‑25, licensed under the Open Government Licence (v3) (full copyright details). Rights of Way with mapping status 4 and 5 are shown with thin lines, others are show with thick lines. The Green lines are different Highways from OSM: Dark Green for unclassified Highways, Blue-Green for Public Cycleways, and Yellow-Green for Adopted Footways. Click on any of these lines for more information. The black lines are approximate modern parish boundaries, constructed by simplifying the polygons in OS Boundary Line. The underlying mapping is OSM Carto (key). Click inside another parish for a link to switch to that parish.

Use of data in OSM: The Rights of Way GIS data shown on the map above is suitably licenced to be used in OpenStreetMap. If doing so, please use the source tag norfolk_county_council_prow_gis_data. But please do not map Rights of Way just from this data; it is important that OSM reflects what is on the ground as well. Official Rights of Way are not always usable on the ground, and the paths on the ground do not always follow the Definitive Line. The PRoW GIS data (and Definitive Statements, where available and suitably licenced) should be used primarily to add appropriate PRoW tags to ways that have already been mapped from other sources such as aerial imagery (where paths and tracks can clearly been seen) or ground surveys.
