Problem with ON/344/8/10

A map is shown below. The underlying map is an Ordnance Survey 1:25000 map that has been produced by Bing. On the underlying map, public rights of way (PROW) are indicated by dashed green lines. Solid lines have been superimposed on top of the underlying map (and will usually hide these dashed green lines). A solid red line signifies a footpath, a solid magenta line signfies a bridleway, a solid green line signifies a restricted byway and a solid blue line signifies a byway open to all traffic (BOAT). These solid lines have been produced from data obtained from the Council of Buckinghamshire (BM) and from the Council of Oxfordshire (ON). You can click on a solid line to get more details about that PROW. You can click on the + and - buttons to zoom in/out.

The SW end of Oxfordshire footpath ON/344/8/10 reaches the boundary with Buckinghamshire at about SU731929 (51.63054,-0.94493).

On the map below, the red line for ON/344/8/10 is superimposed on top of a green line that is provided by the underlying 1:25000 map. However, this green line does not continue South of SU731929.

So is ON/344/8/10 a cul-de-sac?

Curiously, ON/344/8/10 is part of the Chiltern Way which resumes at about SU729926 (51.62820,-0.94712) with footpath BM/TUV/24A/1. So what happens to the Chiltern Way between these two points?

I've looked at the online map provided by Buckinghamshire. This area is in postcode RG9 6LQ. There is no indication on this map of a path or track between SU731929 and the road through Northend.
