I’ve been using a WordPress Plugin called OS OpenSpace Maps for quite a while that allows the mapping of trails (I use .gpx format to record the trails) onto an OS Map.
This has worked well, but in updating a blog post I came across the information that the Ordnance Survey has produced a new plugin that works with their DataHub Maps service. This is an even better service and if you’re a low-use user, you can upgrade to the Premium level subscription to get 1:25,000 scale maps.
The map can be easily zoomed and can be clicked to take to full screen size.
Here are a couple of links to help you along the way of installing and using the plugin.

Small correction: The plugin was not developed by OS but by Simon Large.
Thanks Frank. I may be totally wrong but wasn’t the original plugin written for the OS by Simon Large, and then he took over development himself?
