1 FP 685 688 +0.4% 4 5y   MZ OT
1A FP 558 556 −0.4% 4 4y   MZ OT
2 FP 434 444 +2.3% 4 5y   MZ OT
3 FP 415 318 −23.4% 2 19m   MZ OT D Statement says that the route "Starts from Gorleston Road" but the line in the GIS data starts about 60m away at TM52709555. The missing link used to be in Lowestoft Parish, and is marked as Lowestoft FP 9 on the Definitive Map and in the GIS data. Presumably the statement is incorrect here.

5 FP 443 473 +6.8% 4 2y   MZ OT
6 FP 41 40 −2.4% 4 5y   MZ OT D Statement says that the route "terminate at Gorleston Road", but the line in the GIS data stops about 60m short at TM52469455. Definitive Map shows some evidence of the missing segment being stopped up; presumably when the residential road was built.

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 'Oulton 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 2024‑04‑09, 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.
