not necessarily a tourer but just need something that I could put a few miles on to work and back so preferably a complete bike , maybe something gathering dust that just needs a service ? 65cm ideal but anything over 60cm is workable . Around 200 GBP ?

I work in a bike shop in north london (Hornsey) I'll see if we've got anything knocking around for you tomorrow.

We just built a really nice Evens tourer around your size but its for a customer. 60cm+ might mean waiting for the right frame though.

Thanks Adam, sounds promising. I did try my regular bike shop ( Simpsons in Kentish Town ) but they don't hold any old bikes. It definitely doesn't need to be pristine ; just need wheels, brakes , and enough low gears to get me up Swains Lane !

PM'd you some details of the shop, I haven't been to Simpons for years but they're a good family business.
