The areas I've cleaned up I've remapped detail using Bing, confirmed names OS, 
but I've also stripped a few paths where they are obviously impractical. Same 
with streams recorded on Streetview which are no longer practical given the new 
buildings appearing on Bing. I've avoided or even replaced 'clean' simply to get 
the OSMInspector page totally clean ... then I can move on. I've few yellow dots 
left on the Malvern area, but I'll drop down and clear up Gloucester first, 
there is not much left there to do
