8 FP 387 388 +0.3% 4 8y   MZ OT TM08SW D Description in Definitive Statement is a duplicate of FP 9. Recorded as FP in GIS data, which does run between Redgrave Road to FP 11.

13 FP 1003 1005 +0.2% 4 4y   MZ OT TM08SW O Northern part is not reinstated across field. Definitive Line is blocked by hedge/ditch at TM04978113.
14 FP 226 236 +4.4% 4 4y   MZ OT TM08SW O Definitive Line is not resinstated across field.
15 FP 689 703 +2.0% 4 4y   MZ OT TM08SE
16 FP 539 600 +11.3% 4 11y   MZ OT TM08SE D N Definitive Statement says route starts at Brickkiln Lane, but in GIS data, the route stops about 50m W of the lane (U33157). Unclear why, or what the status of the missing segment is. If GIS data is correct, there's a 50m gap on the network between U33157 and the start of the route.
17 FP 107 111 +3.7% 4 8y   MZ OT TM08SE O A Diversion Order for new route was prepared and passed, but due to an administrative oversight the legal process was never finally completed. This also applies to Bressingham FP 24. Route signed on ground does not match Definitive Statement and GIS data.
18 FP 826 865 +4.7% 4 10y   MZ OT TM08SE
19 FP 706 705 −0.1% 4 4y   MZ OT TM08SW O Route on ground (including a foot bridge over a ditch) does not quite follow the definitive line.
20 FP 1065 1076 +1.0% 4 8y   MZ OT TM08SW O Route on ground obstructed and unlawfully re-routed around farm buildings.
21 FP 842 853 +1.3% 4 3y   MZ OT TM08SW
22 FP 80 90 +12.5% 4 4y   MZ OT TM08SE O Route available on the ground does not follow the Definitive Line.
23 FP 49 61 +24.5% 4 4y   MZ OT TM08SW N O Route is overgrown. Both GIS data and Definitive Statement suggest that the north end of this path is on a (probably) stopped up part of Brick Kiln Lane, and there is no access to Fersfield Road. An administrative error?
24 FP 928 932 +0.4% 4 2y   MZ OT TM07NW

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 'South Lopham 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.
