Many moons ago someone posted on UKclimbing a link to a website where one could view historical maps of the British isles. I don’t suppose anyone remembers the name of the website ?
I regularly do a little walk in my local area around an old stately Home and I’m sure an old map would show how some of the paths were once carriage drives. Would allow me to bore my wife even more rigid as we head to the pub for lunch.

This is a good site for old maps - high quality scans of OS at large-scale in many areas.

Once you get the hang of the interface, the national library of Scotland have a trove covering the UK.

Don't know why someone disliked your post; WheresThePath allows you to select which map is used, including historical OS maps.

I’m convinced a lot of random dislikes come from people accidentally hitting the dislike button on mobile touch screens when scrolling. I know this because I’ve done it a few times and undone it when I see it.

I can also tell because sometimes a great many people must scroll past a post of mine on their mobiles...
