1 FP 70 70 +0.0% 4 6y   MZ OT TF40NE
2 FP 964 985 +2.2% 4 20m   MZ OT TF40NE
3 FP 195 0 1     MZ OT TF41SE N Path ends at TF46211150 on the old county boundary. But the boundary has since moved, and the path is now a dead end there. Presuably there should be a continuation southwards, perhaps to meet with Wisbech (Cambs) FP 8 at TF46281128.
4 FP 86 93 +8.1% 4 2m   MZ OT TF41SE N Path ends at old county boundary at TF46431134. But the boundary has since moved, and the path is now a dead end there. Presumably there should be a route along the southern edge of the field from TF46431134 to join with Wisbech (Cambs) FP 8 at TF46281128. Recent OS 1:25k shows this as a Footpath.
5 RB 261 267 +2.3% 4 19m   MZ OT TF40NE
6 FP 1214 1196 −1.5% 3 2y   MZ OT TF41SE D Grid references in the statement erroneously list the 10km square as TL, when it should be TF. Hence the two grid references should be TF45721160 and TF45751160. Mapped route in OSM does not follow the Definitive Line. Possibly the stiles are in the wrong place.
7 FP 50 55 +10.0% 4 21m   MZ OT TF41SE

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 'Walsoken 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.
