Thanks both. 

I tried online but no joy. Just photography shops that tend to have a couple of scopes in stock. 

I've since ordered an 8" dob online.

After a search around, I went into Swansea only to find that telescope planet have moved. Then another Google search came up with carmarthen cameras. Whilst they do not have a massive stock, they did have the plossl eyepiece I went there for. They also stock x-cel eyepieces so it's worth a punt. I also found them very helpful which is always a good thing.

You may have had a lucky escape that Telescope Planet have shut down, just Google it for lot's of negative feedback.
