Do you buy this off the Web or is there a UK place fitting them? Preferably around Lancaster or South Lakes.

Be careful. In the EU and UK the law now requires towbars to be certified (have type approval) for use with the vehicle they are fitted to. Plenty of info if you Google it (such as: Fitment of a non type approved towbar on a vehicle registered on or after 1st August 1998 could result in prosecution and in the event of an accident the vehicles insurance could be invalidated.)
It's probable a US import wouldn't have that approval as I believe American hitch systems are slightly different to ours, so they wouldn't normally come over here. (And the cost of shipping a single one from eBay would be pretty horrible too.)
