    There's a good firm of tanners on your door step right in Cambridge. They are not the cheapest but they do a first class job.

    All I can recall is they are based in Sawston.

    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A f**kin bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?"

    Kenny,

    Nice skin, pity my 6 didn't come back like that.

    Current price for roe skin is 22 + vat + postage and it takes a couple of months.

    thanks, I got this back about a week ago, and it was about 9 weeks or so in the factory, although they did tell me sheepskins are taking almost 3 months at the moment (deerskins apparently get a faster service)
