Apologies if this has already been posted up in some shape or form, but I havent been able to find it if it has.

Just a thought as I have done a few googles and there are bits and bobs popping up under different searches, but does anyone have a full(as far as they are aware) list of UK frame builders/renovators still in business?

I think it may be worth a sticky as a decent database for anyone looking for a new build or renovation as I may be doing over the next year.

Chris Marshall in Keighley (01535 691073), does refurbs and resprays and will also build you a frame. He learned his trade at Pennine Cycles in Bradford who, I think, are also still building as are Ellis-Briggs in Shipley.
