Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

On my maps (UK) I can see footpaths but the wiki doesn't show the legend for a redy/brown solid line inside dashed blocks.

Can you link to an example? It's not clear whether "my maps (UK)" is a brand of OSM-based map, or whether you're just looking at one of the six map styles on openstreetmap.org in the UK, or something else.

I should have pointed out I am using OSMand app. I've linked to a screenshot.

Those are administrative boundaries. You can disable them somewhere... There is a quite comprenhensive key in the app, in the help menu IIRC.

Hi, If it is a highway then I think the dashes show the type of surface of the way. For me, the screenshot isn't too good. The OsmAnd legend is here:- https://osmand.net/help-online/map-legend

I just checked a place I know well, this is definitly a boundary. Maybe the legend is outdated, or it shows another admin level ( 8 here I think ).
