Yes you will be made very welcome at John and Jean Ainsworth. They
certainly have a very impressive collection of Sarracenias. They are
located almost as far away from you as its possible to be and still
remain in England - in Lancashire.

I can probably find a phone number somewhere but try emailing them on to arrange a visit.
