Sorry I meant npemap.org.uk.

It suddenly stopped working at approximately 2355 UK time last night.

What I did, as a matter of interest, was got an OpenLayers-based slippy 
map of the NPE maps (with OSM footpath data overlaid on top). It worked 
for a while.... was meaning to announce it late last night :-(

It isn't that ustile.npemap.org.uk somehow blacklists clients that make 
more than X (where X would probably be no more than about 20) requests per 
minute would it? All it's doing is serving static images so (together with 
the fact that bandwidth isn't a problem) I'd be surprised it would be a 
major issue.
