Problem with HP/Rowlands-Castle/7

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 Hampshire (HP) and from the Council of West Sussex (WS). 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.

HP/Rowlands-Castle/7 is a footpath that goes from SU744135 (50.91704,-0.94189) to SU747138 (50.91943, -0.93820). At SU747138 it reaches the boundary with West Sussex. The footpath does not continue into West Sussex.

I've looked at the online map provided by West Sussex and the footpath is missing from that map.

On the map below, the red line for HP/Rowlands-Castle/7 is superimposed on top of a green line that is provided by the underlying 1:25000 map. However, this green line does not continue Eastwards of SU747138 and so I conclude that there is no error in the data provided by the councils. For some historical reason, this footpath is a member of the clan of PROW cul-de-sacs!
