The Darkroom UK although the Analogue Wonderland Wonderlab might be a good choice when they sort out their teething troubles. With Analogue Wonderland you have the option to pay for developing when you buy your film.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I use Peak Imaging at Sheffield. Handy for me as I can drop my film off when picking up grandson from school.

Loved the video, Peter.
Surprised at how easy it is to make (with chemicals that are available in my workplace, no less)!

Don't forget I offer to Process negative FILM for Pentax User members CHEEEP no VAT !
I had to increase C41 to £5-00 a film but I can do Traditional B&W for £ 2-50 a film -- send me cheque + Stamped Addressed Envelope large enough to take strips of film say about 7 -8 inches long -- I can give my Address by Private Message I do NOT scan onto a Disc -- develop negatives only

Analogue Films in Hanbury Street, London is my usual place for colour - mainly as i worked nearby (when i went into an office). Very good and cheap, do 35mm, 120, E6 too and they have some films for sale at good prices. friendly staff too. They do postal too.

i do B&W at home as it is cheaper. Tried some C41 at home - a Sous Vide cooker is a great help in this, but still use AF for a lot of colour (especially holiday stuff) as they do a very good job and are speedy.
Pentax k1000, MX, ME Super, K5iiD 18-55, Tamron 70-300, Tamron 500 mirror, pentax 10-17, 50 1:4, a manual 28, some extension tubes and a bagful of memory cards. That's all i need... and a load of film cameras too... that's it, honest.

So, I've dug out my MZ6 new batteries in it and film on the way. Looking forward to going "Old School" just because. So who to use for developing and printing nowadays please?
Enjoy life
