I posted earlier in the week about my favourite stained glass door that was £8 from a salvage yard. Another of my finds were the solid brass handles that were in a dusty box for £5 each pair. As with the rest of the house, none of the handles match but that adds to the character of our imperfect home!
For a list of UK antique salvage yards it's best to refer to your local phone directory as all the websites I've looked at don't seem very complete. To get good insider info speak to antique dealers and shops locally who will know backstreet dealers that might not be well publicised.
Salvo has pretty good nationwide coverage as a starting point.
