Trying to discover the extent of the Paleo community in the UK, where are the hotspots? numbers in or around our location.
OK so if you stop by and are from the UK please leave a note stating where you are and what your personal experiences are. We're located in Ilkley, West Yorkshire so particularly interested in hearing from people in our area, though of course equally welcome those from further afield.

I'm in Cambridge, and new to Paleo but don't expect I'll ever turn back after experiencing the enormous health benefits.
I've been shopping around for a good source for grass-fed lamb and was just wondering myself if there was a Paleo community. Great to see there are some others about. I'll check out the links!
London here - would love to get involved in starting up a UK online community/meetups to discuss experiences - i can't find anyone around me who understands/supports/ or has even heard about the benefits of paleo!
Hey guys! My wife and I live in Leeds city centre, we've been eating paleo (...ish, plus a bit of cheese and wine!) for a couple of months now and enjoying it immensely.
Regarding the comments about obtaining grass-fed meat in the UK, my understanding is that any fairly decent British lamb or beef will have been grass-fed, at least partially (you've all seen the lambs in the fields, surely?!). I think this is in contrast to more intensive, barn rearing which is more common in the US. People who have lived in both countries tell us how lucky we are to get such good quality meat, so I think this hunt for meat labelled "grass fed" is a bit of a red herring, as a result of browsing mostly American paleo sites.
