If anyone like me doesn't have a local gear shop <therefore has to stock up on gas when out and about as it can't be sent through the post> Wilkies also have the 250 size screw in canisters at 2 for 6 quid.
Numerous companies/retailers sell virtually identical versions, including Vango who add some orange anodising and sell them as their 'Compact Stove' for £15 - http://www.vango.co.uk/gas-stoves/compact-gas-stove.html

Got one a few years ago for my lightweight camping pack and its great no problems .
Ah, that's good to know, might mean I don't need to try and park in Keswick....!
