I can't remember the exact details around there (been many years since I last 
walked it), but the main cycleway is the old railway track, and there there 
several footpaths which used to run originally alongside the railway. So 
probably just a case that your deletion needs rolling back. One of the problems 
which makes understanding some of the close proximities is the random nature of 
'layers' added just to some elements. The steps between the old track bed and 
the footway passing under it start and end on the same layer? There is nothing 
to distinguish the vertical relation between the two tracks going north although 
guesswork would suggest that the footpath may be further down the slope towards 
the river? There is quite a steep drop from the town to the river.
