    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.

    Also http://www.secondhanddarkroom.co.uk/

    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.

    The Rayco business and name was sold to a new company Rayco Photographic Limited. Currently contactable by phone 01283 763768 They continue to supply most Rayco products but not the hydrochloric Acid. There will be a new web site, new web address soon.
