I have had similar issues, but without the abusive farmer in your part of
the world? (Weardale).  My old OS map said the Weardale w
Way went through this field, and there was a waymark at the junction with
the road, but once in the (very large!) field, there was no obvious way out
- just rusty gates and barbed wire - I think the route was changed, but
they didn't take down all the old waymarks, which left a lot of paths to
nowhere.....   Can't remember how I mapped that in the end....
