Don't know if they're still there, but we went to a Co called CC Media in there to get a quote for web site design, prep and host. This must have been about 1997. After we went over the spec, basically just a 30 page site with pics, the guy sat back, hummed and hawed, and said, with a straight face "We could get this going for about £30,000 but I think we'd be getting closer to £50,000 by the time we got the bells and whistles on it, and started on an e-commerce section and a feedback form".
It may surprise you to hear we didn't go with this generous offer, but went to an alternate within walking distance, and got a fully maintained package for £3 k, par for the course back then if you had absolutely no in-house capabilities.
I still remember coming out the door beside the then snooker hall and asking my colleague if there really were 4 zero's after the 3.
