Not sure if this is the right forum, or if it's been posted before.

Some time ago Capt Paranoia posted a neat website which allowed you to compare satellite maps alongside OS Maps to see if the path actually existed:

https://wtp2.appspot.com/wheresthepath.htm

IIRC a friend of his was involved in setting it up. I've found a similar site, but it uses overlays where you can change the transparency. It's good for overlaying older maps to see the locations of features that have been demolished etc. might be of interest to UKCers:

You can change the displayed mapping on WheresThePath, too. Just click on the little map icon, and select whatever historical mapping you want.

This is sometimes useful when the OS tile server limit is reached.

The French equivalent of OS (IGN) have a site where you can look at a variety of maps & aerial photographs at scales from maybe 1:5 000 upwards. Its possible to alter the transparency with eg an aerial photo overlain by a semi-transparent map, see https://www.geoportail.gouv.fr/
