Do a web search for "DIY+UK" and then select the best sites that appear. A lot of sites have updated their pages in the last month or two.

Done a search using google but get loads of shops which is not what im looking for sites, i want sites like http://www.pavingexpert.com/ and other with diy tips which usauly are not ranked high enough on google as the bigger shops pay to get a higher ranking on search engines.

In an earlier contribution to this discussion,

In case it's of any use, I've put all my DIY and Central Heating favo(u)rites on line at http://www.hampton-magna.freeserve.co.uk/DIY_Favorites /
These have been accumulated over the last several years, and there may be duplicates and I can't guarantee that they all still work - but it is a starting point.

Feel free - but it would be a good idea to validate them first, because some are quite old!

Then all they need to do is google what they want.
I got all my favourites on AOL which stores off line as does MSN I believe. But if anyone thinks he needs to reformat each time you load microsoft updates by mistake, just try booting it up in the OS disk then letting it repair itself. Then all your stuff will be safe.

Well, I was thinking of tarting them up with brief explanations
Of course, it requires a bit of x-checking with the ukdiy FAQ list to avoid unnecessary duplication
