14 FP 991 1016 +2.5% 4 9m   MZ OT TL88NW N O Route signed on ground by Scout centre does not follow definitive line. Route ends at TL84798670. The continuation along the Parish boundary to Thetford FP 15 and Santon Downham FP 4 at TL84618643 is not recorded as a Right of Way in either parish.
15 FP 3328 3330 +0.1% 4 7y   MZ OT TL88NW D O Route obstructed in a couple of places, but there are reasonable alternatives. Route on Definitive Map does not match that in GIS data. Statement has modification date of June 2000, but no evidence of an update on the map.
16 FP 440 448 +1.8% 4 2y   MZ OT TL88SW O Route in GIS data crosses the river away from the Middle Stanch bridge. Presumably a modification order is needed to correct the route.

19 FP 164 168 +2.4% 4 2y   MZ OT TL88SE
20 FP 432 434 +0.5% 4 2y   MZ OT TL88SE N Route stops at TL86068100, with no continuation east along boundary to connect with Elveden BY 3 at TL84658086, despite two long-distance paths using this track.

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 'Thetford 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.
