    MF film in Devon and Cornwall

    I have a trip planned to Devon and Cornwall next month. Can anyone recommend some good places to buy MF film in these counties? Thanks

    Most if not all Jessops stores will stock film. The bigger Boots chemists stores might stock some colour MF and some B&W MF.

    However if I were you I'd buy what I think I might need and a little more just in case from a retailer such as AgPhotographic, Silverprint or Mathers of Lancashire.

    Even if there are specific shops in both counties, they are big counties and may be in towns that you have to go out of your way to get to

    Thanks. I am bringing film--just worried about what to do if I run out. I thought it might be a good idea to have a list of places to try in case of emergency.

    I'm from Plymouth and very few shops stock film especially 120, not even sure if the Jessops in Plymouth do anymore, I would bring what you need (and a bit spare) with you.

    Thanks, Ed. It's the same situation here in the US. I was just hoping that there might be a shop or two somewhere in Devon or Cornwall that still catered to film photographers.

    There's a shop in Falmouth that has a good range of films but I don't remember it's name. They carry Ilford including LF because of trhe nearby Art College.

    Perfect! I'll be staying near Falmouth the second week, when I'm most likely to run out. I take it the art college is University College Falmouth, but I'm not sure which shop you're thinking of...Associated Photography? The Photo Shop?

    Bill Spears a member here took me to the shop, I didn't take in the name, buy enough and ask for discount !!!!

    Look at the Ilford website for other stockists but in Falmouth it will be:

    Jessops in Penzance stocked 35mm & 120 Ilfords films a couple of years ago

    Not sure if they will still keep it - it seems to depend upon the individual shop manager - but they used to have a steady demand for it

    You will find Devon and Cornwall have lots of photo opportunities and great ever changing light

    Have fun
