Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

I don't see this as a good reason to change the route, as the farmer should know better. There is also a cycle route back to Church Lane from about half a kilometer beyond this bridge which could be used to work a way back to the SUTNOR 1 route....
