    Where in the UK are you located? Depending upon the area, I'll check with friends.

        Vitcas in Bristol has them. If you're in the north, there's Armstrong in Cumbria, and Kiln Linings near Manchester (there are a number of others in the Midlands as well). They're all around ?1.29 to ?2 each for 230x114x64mm. Don't know about anything near London...checking with a friend in the southeast.

          Looks like it's worth the drive from Newcastle south for the bricks.

            I found Kilnlinings to be cheapest for all the materials, brick/insulation/ect. My local merchant was far more expensive.

                Hi all,

                I know this is an old tread, but...

                Found a pretty cheap and seemingly very reputable supplier of refractory material in the UK: potteryprouk, "the online sales division of the SWP group". Bought materials from them yesterday (bricks, mortar, calsil board, ceramic blanket) and saved £300 (incl. next day delivery to London) compared to what I'd have paid for the same items at Vitcas and £250 from Kilnlinings. Worth sharing!
