9 FP 747 741 −0.8% 3 7m   MZ OT TG14SE N Road at western end linking path at TG16394339 to Vincent Road at TG16334337 is not recorded as a Public Highway or a Right of Way, leaving a gap in the network.

11 FP 554 526 −5.1% 4 7m   MZ OT TG14SE D N Statement says the path commences at the east end of Nelson Road. However, the maintained section of Nelson Road ends at Hillside Road at TG16764316 (and Conway Road is not included in the List of Streets), while according to the Definitive Map and GIS data, the path doesn't start until TG16874310. The route between TG16764316 and TG16874310 is not recorded as a Public Highway or a Right of Way, leaving a gap in the network.

15 FP 80 92 +15.0% 4 19m   MZ OT TG14SE N Neither Knowle Road south of TG16124255, nor the spur from Common Lane between TG16284245 and TG16224244 are recorded as Public Highways or Rights of Way, so there is no access to this route.
16 FP 372 384 +3.2% 4 19m   MZ OT TG14SE O Paths on ground do not follow the Definitive Line.
17 FP 185 204 +10.3% 4 20m   MZ OT TG14SE N Route stops at old course of road at TG16284229. Neither the old road or the continuation to the new road appear to be recorded as Rights of Way, leaving a dead end here.
18 FP 261 275 +5.4% 4 7m   MZ OT TG14SE
19 FP 608 584 −3.9% 2 7m   MZ OT TG14SE Short section unmapped at southern end. The mapped route in OSM cuts the corner off.

23 FP 92 0 0     MZ OT TG14SE N Southern end of route at TG16454176 is a dead end on the parish boundary, with no continuation recorded in Beeston Regis.
24 FP 134 0 0     MZ OT TG14SE N South-western end of route at TG16344177 is a dead end on the parish boundary, with no continuation recorded in Beeston Regis.
25 FP 48 48 +0.0% 4 19m   MZ OT TG14SE N Path continues over parish boundary at southern end, but it's not recorded as a Right of Way in Upper Sheringham.
26 FP 1194 1257 +5.3% 3 5m   MZ OT TG14SW D Statement clearly describes the route running south along the western boundary of the pond to join the Esplanade. But this section is missing from the Definitive Map and the GIS data.

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 'Sheringham 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.
