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

1 FP 42 52 +23.8% 4 4y   MZ OT TL79SW
2 FP 26 47 +80.8% 4 7y   MZ OT TL79SW
3 FP 46 59 +28.3% 4 5y   MZ OT TL79SW
5 BR 0 0       OT D N Listed in Definitive Statement as a route along Whiteplot Drove joining Methwold BR 26 and Methwold BR 32. But not present in GIS data. Probably would have been removed/modified when cut-off channel built, and partially replaced by Methwold FP 31. Even with replacement by FP 31, this still leaves a bit of a gap in the network.
6 BR 5926 5986 +1.0% 4 21m   MZ OT TL69SE
7 RB 0 0       OT D Feltwell RB 7 is mentioned in Statement for Southery RB 17 as a continuation of that route. But the route is missing from Feltwell Statement and the GIS data. Definitive map records it as having been deleted, presumably since it was coincident with an unclassified highway (U21504).
9 BR 5852 2353 −59.8% 2 21m   MZ OT TL68NW
10 BR 1020 1035 +1.5% 4 7y   MZ OT TL79SW N Route terminates at TL72019315, with no recorded continuation past that point. Presumably stopped up when former airfield constructed, but not reinstated afterwards.
11 BR 912 927 +1.6% 4 7y   MZ OT TL79SW
12 BR 2021 2028 +0.3% 4 9y   MZ OT TL69SE N GIS data shows this starting a few meters W of the bridge at TL70049182, and the NCC Highways map shows the U21354 ending a few meters E of the bridge. Surely there should be some bridleway rights over the bridge?
13 BR 1628 1628 +0.0% 4 7y   MZ OT TL69SE
14 BR 474 501 +5.7% 4 7y   MZ OT TL69SE
15 BY 3844 4184 +8.8% 4 18m   MZ OT TL68NE D Definitive Statement clearly says route continues NW of BR 6 coincident with the U21506. This section is not included in the GIS data, and is not on the Definitive Map.
16 BR 4071 4047 −0.6% 4 21m   MZ OT TL68NE
17 BR 1075 1081 +0.6% 4 7y   MZ OT TL79SW

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 'Feltwell 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 2022‑12‑13, 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.
