Also, my friend uses Twitter when he came across this company @rootandstone, (again, all this is new to me). Passing the site onto me, (http://rootandstone.co.uk ), I had a look around and the prices seemed reasonable, (I think?).
I'm still unsure as how best to proceed though as I'm not fully versed on what the upkeep of this sort of thing is especially in regards to weather and such. So if anybody out there can offer any form of advice in regards to this I'd be most grateful.
