We don't have any WMS servers for any of the layers that I am aware
of.  Most of the rendered layers are accessible as a TMS tile layer,
which is what google and bing and others use.  The TMS url for the HDM
tiles is below (you will need to replace z, x, and y with the proper
values in ArcGIS I assume):


Hope this works for you.

Regarding the village names, this is awesome feedback.  I will go
through and try to match them all up with the ones we already have in
our database so we get both spellings, etc.  Any differences I will
note in the 'note' or 'fixme' tag.
