There's a couple of tube makers around the Preston area; or go all the way across the country and you'll find some rib makers in Hull, who make their own tubes and are probably considered to be towards the lower end of the budget...

far as I know the closest are around the Preston area, other than getting someone to come to you, which will probably cost similar amount in the end
