It's a public bridleway, with the usual "evidence", so no argument about 

But is it highway=bridleway or highway=track?

There is evidence of recent wheeled use, which I think was a tractor 
gaining access across the adjacent fields for the purpose of 
hedge-trimming alongside it. It clearly was once a vehicular track.

What I think I'm getting at is this -- is the highway= tag intended to 
represent the physical appearance, or the intended use?
