Have a look in Old Bike Mart, few in there. My local wheel chap only charges 35 per wheel if you supply the parts. ( near Basildon ).

Devon  Rim Company, without doubt the best by far, the only one's I use now and I build a lot of wheel's.

I see Devon Rim are selling spokes and rim sets on Ebay, but they're not too complimentary about the quality of thier own rims and imply that imperfections are to be expected.
Although they're about 25 cheaper than the same stuff from CWC, them saying that puts me off buying from them. Have you tried these rims?

Hi ALl,
Devon rim co sell two ranges of rims, "Valtru" the "trade" quality and "Rolltru" the premium quality rims
The rims I bought must be the premium product as they are the doggy's dooda's ;D

You're right, and it's the rim+ spokes that's "Valtru" on Ebay, although they do do the "Rolltru" in spokes only.
At 59 a set inc postage that's a good saving over CWC.
