1 FP 1066 1057 −0.8% 4 20m   MZ OT TG00NE
2 FP 1146 1148 +0.2% 4 7y   MZ OT TG00SE N Both ends stop at parish boundary with no continuation in Kimberley or Wicklewood. (The route is connected via FP3 and FP4 though.)

6 FP 369 382 +3.5% 4 2y   MZ OT TG10SW
7 FP 239 258 +7.9% 2 18m   MZ OT TG10SW D The Definitive Statement refers to two branches, but only one is present in the GIS data, and only this route is obvious on the ground. The Definitive Map clearly shows two branches, both of which pass through what are now private gardens, and neither of which match the route in the GIS data. Presumably, the necessary modification orders were either not made or not implemented correctly.

15 FP 543 550 +1.3% 4 2y   MZ OT TM09NE Unclear if mapped route is actually the correct definitive line. Should the path be on the north of the ditch?
16 FP 489 507 +3.7% 4 7y   MZ OT TM09NE N NW end stops at A11 boundary. A continuation (presumably to join with Besthorpe FP 11) is signed as a Public Footpath SW along the A11 boundary. There's also a sign back the other way from Besthorpe FP 11.
17 FP 395 401 +1.5% 4 2y   MZ OT TM09NE D Definitive Map and GIS data show the path crossing the field boundary and running on its northern side prior to joining the road at TM10169900. The Statement says that the path runs on the southern side of the boundary.

31 FP 445 436 −2.0% 4 6y   MZ OT TG00SE N West end at railway does not connect to another right of way, though there is a permissive path along the line.
32 FP 965 978 +1.3% 4 2y   MZ OT TM09NE D O The near the north end of the route is obstructed by a hedge, but you can easily carry on along the track to get to the road instead. Definitive Statement doesn't mention kink at N end that is in 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 'Wymondham 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.
