Any one know of a source for raw chemicals for B+W in the U.K apart from Silverprint?
I'm not quite sure what you mean by raw. Do you mean the raw materials for mixing your own chemcials? Or are you after a general supplier of photographic materials?
Silverprint are one of the best general suppliers in the UK for traditional photographic materials.
Also good are http://www.novadarkroom.com , phone for their comprehensive catalogue as their wen site is not that great.
If you work your way thorough to the links page on the EMMG site and select the commecial page you will find six or seven companies that can help.
Yes, about the best I know of in the Uk is Rayco Chemicals based in Yorkshire (www.rayco-chemicals.co.uk)
They have stopped trading.
Thanks Dave. Looks like Retro will do the job. Pity about Rayco, I live about 10 miles from them and used to call in often. Silverprint are a bit cheaper but postage/being around to sign for packages makes things yet more complex!

Have you asked Silverprint if they will send your stuff via the post office, it might cost a wee bit more but that way you can pick it up from your local post office. Being around for other delivery services is a pain. I'm lucky that I can send to stuff to my parents address, they live in the same town and being retired are around most of the time.
From a post on another forum a couple of weeks ago, Rayco will eventually reappear under it's new management. The guy who bought them posted to that effect. I think the guy lives in the Midlands: that's a Burton Upon Trent dial code.
