In ArcMap open catalogue and then create a new WMS (web mapping service) to the following URL
If you don’t have access to ArcMap download the excellent open source Quantum GIS from this link here Quantum GIS.

You only need to give it a name and the URL should be the following https://www.geostore.com/OGC/OGCInterface?UID=UDATAGOV2011&PASSWORD=datagov2011&INTERFACE=ENVIRONMENT&LC=0 as below.
