There isn't any easy way to load raster maps (gif, jpg or png) onto your Quest. Crying or Very sad

You can use GPSMapEdit (http://www.geopainting.com/en/) to create your own maps in Garmin format but it is tedious and it probably won't be anywhere near as accurate as the directions you get on your street maps.

If you are willing to plan your route in advance using your PC then you can load and calibrate the maps you want to use in GPSMapEdit and then create a route and waypoints which you upload to the GPS.

You will still need your paper OS map handy. Set the map datum to OSGB and the Garmin will give you the co-ordinates shown on the OS map rather than lat/long.
