Caving shops in the area

OK, so I know Bernies, Inglesport and Caving Supplies "oop north", but now I'm living down here in Bristol, can anyone recommend decent caving shops a bit closer to home?

Cheers,

Steve.

"Well known" or infamous*. Discuss.

Based in Bristol, BAT Products is your closest tame-caver shop but if you're off to S. Wales don't forget Dragon (boo, hiss, traitor).

As J-Rat says 'its in Tucker Street', the street that don't rhyme with anything.

Quip-U in Bristol itself used to be OK. Not been there for years though....

Quip-U in Bristol is long gone. Shame.
