12 FP 1301 1349 +3.7% 3 21m   MZ OT TM29NW Mapped route in OSM contains a deviation that's not part of the definitive line.

14 FP 797 791 −0.8% 4 5y   MZ OT TM29NW D In GIS data, this doesn't join RB17 at its junction with FP19 as Definitive Statement claims. The reason (as seen from the amendments on the Definitive Map) is that that FP19 has been diverted and now joins RB17 further north.

24 RB 1434 1442 +0.6% 4 4y   MZ OT TM29NW O Definitive line of northern section is obstructed, but 'Windy Lane' track available 40m to the west. Suggest route is officially diverted.
25 FP 557 562 +0.9% 4 4y   MZ OT TM29NW
26 FP 1522 1480 −2.8% 3 7m   MZ OT TM29NW D Mapped route in OSM follows path on ground between TM21899661 and TM21689623, but this doesn't agree with the Definitive Map and GIS data. I suspect the OSM route is correct, and the recently diverted route for that section simply wasn't recorded accurately on the Definitive Map.

28 FP 518 537 +3.7% 4 4y   MZ OT TM29NW
29 FP 633 542 −14.4% 3 4y   MZ OT TM29NW According to the GIS data this overlaps with some of RB 24 for a bit. Definitive Statement is ambiguous.

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 'Saxlingham Nethergate 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.
