In the meantime why try StreetMap.co.uk:

This has lots of different style and scale maps when you zoom in/out, and
shows the following at this location - springs all around Penwethers Farm,
with the mani stream passing below, originating further west at Stanley Farm
near Pentraze, and then continuing east around Nansavallan Wood, to
eventually spill into Calenick Creek.

I find StreetMap one of the best online map apps as it gives you A-Z style
street maps, Barts and OS style intermediate maps and Road Atlas type maps -
all with their different uses and features.
