Best place for good L numbers

Looking for some different shops for good L number plecs. (OK L260 and L134!)
I live in chipping Norton outside of Oxford, my go-to shops are Stratford Maidenhead, sweet knowle, and the maidenheads around Oxford. But they all seem to be very expensive and only have a few odd L numbers like L200 and the panaques. Stratford has zebs but I'm not looking to buy those. Any other nice little shops anyone has seen? I'm willing to travel as long as it's good, rare aquatics was on the list but it's closed? Anybody know why?

Cheers

Jack

I believe Rare Aquatics closed due to the owner's health.

Pier Aquatics in Wigan is very good, they have a Facebook page, bit of a distance for you though.

Thanks I might make the journey up there one day, what happened to everything at rare? Was it sold as a business or did it fold completely?

Not sure, but I read somewhere that the owners (Nick and Jo) started selling T-Shirts from the same premises.
