[Talk-GB] Footpath Open Data is not always accurate.

Hi

If you're using local authority data/os open data to map paths, as a 
contributor current is in Somerset, please don't assume their layout 
corresponds with what's on the ground or is more accurate than what's 
mapped in OSM. These official ways are often outdated, being based on 
redundant features such as grubbed up fences & hedgerows. Gate & stiles 
occasionally get moved. These tweaks often don't make it back to the 
Definitive Map.

Please verify using this data doesn't make OSM less accurate.

Cheers
DaveF
