2 FP 1090 1113 +2.1% 4 2y   MZ OT D Statement has erroneously repeated phrase "corner of Bear's Lane approximately 45 metres west north west" and the two grid references shortly afterwards are incorrect. They should be close to TL91854806.

8 FP 1527 1556 +1.9% 4 2y   MZ OT D In the statement, "generally south westerly direction" should read "generally north easterly direction".
9 FP 528 30 −94.3% 2 2y   MZ OT
10 FP 429 431 +0.5% 4 2y   MZ OT D Statement does not mention third limb show in GIS data, which continues to Potland Lane.
11 FP 596 612 +2.7% 4 2y   MZ OT D The two roads named in the statement are now Potland Lane and Bridge Street Road respectively.

15 FP 1830 1827 −0.2% 4 2y   MZ OT N Statement says route starts from Park Road at TL90685008, but according to the length recorded in the SCC List of Streets, park Road stops at TL90744979. However Land Registry Polygons suggest an historic highway runs from TL90744979 to at least TL90615023. What is the status of this route? It doesn't seem to be recorded as a Highway or Right of Way, leaving a gap in the network.

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 'Lavenham 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 2021‑10‑12, 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 suffolk_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.
