Finding classic computers in the UK

I think the pool of equipment in the UK is much smaller than the USA and
VT220, and PDP-11 seem to be like hens teeth and much more expensive than in
the USA. 

Some stuff I have picked up from local contacts, some from Vintage Computer
Forums, there was a VT220 on there recently

but I think Rob may have nabbed that, Some from E-Bay, Some from RCM

It used to be possible to pick stuff up at Amateur Radio Rallies but that
source seems to have largely dried up these days.
