OK should have both Oxfordshire and Bucks now. (discovered the latter was also on geofabrik)

It may take some time to render first time you try somewhere out, as it's got to generate the geojson from the database... but the geojson is now cached making it much faster on subsequent requests.

Yes - www.free-map.org.uk. (at least for southern and northern England and Wales)

sad to say it doesn't appear to cover the chilterns - I think it might have done a while ago, but not now :'(

Since the public rights of way tagging using designation=* is a very
British (actually English and Welsh) thing, I doubt it will ever be
rendered on the main OSM map. :-(

I'm sure you're probably correct, but are we sure designation doesn't apply outside of the UK? I think it's worth pursuing - anyone know what the process is to request it's added - it would add some much value to the UK map that I really do think it's worth making the case to have it added.

However, depending on what you're interested in, there's a nice view
from ITO that highlights ways tagged with the main PRoW designation

That's awesome, although depressingly it shows just how few I have actually managed to tag with a designation :'(

Thanks all!
