Any shop to buy a slider in UK?

Hi all,
Can anyone recommend a place in UK where to shop for an indieslider, or any slider for that matter? I intend to use it mostly with my 5D2, but it would be great if it would fit to my XH A1 as well.
Thank you!

Hi Peter. I think this is a UK company.

Glidetrack ? Portable video camera dolly system for film makers

Glidetrack is ace. I've used one for over a year now.

I use a Glidetrack a lot with my 5DII. An excellent product. Good value too.

That looks remarkably like a Glidetrack. I have a faint memory that it did start as a DIY project using off the shelf parts & that Alistair made it into a product. He does a damn good job of shipping the Glidetrack super-fast too.

Most of the commercially sold sliders use the Igus carriage and rails. $150 Shipped and exactly like the ones guys sell for $400 plus shipping. The DIY takes about 5 minutes to make. I've made two of them.
