I'm thinking of having double glazing put in and would welcome any reccommendations / warnings or ideas about who to get to do it or is secondary glazing worth looking at?
Has anyone had any experience of that?

Warnings; check whether you need planning permission. If you live in the Lewes conservation area you will do.
Secondary glazing can be v good, and much cheaper. I prefer the kind that you put up at the start of winter and take down in the spring - so long as you've got somewhere to store it during the warmer months. I think the permanent kind is often unsightly.

go local - for example Hi Seal in Hailsham - a good company I've used. There must be Lewes independants too.

This is who i used (in 2013 i think) very good. Easy to contact when something with the window wasnt correct (fault with when they were made not installed) and cleaned up after themselves

The magnetic-strip secondary glazing system described in the link below might suit you: a fraction of the cost of double glazing, and good in conservation areas as it's basically invisible from the outside and unobtrusive from the inside. And as @tobnac says, you can lift it off in summer.

I only have an anti-recommenation. Don't use County Windows. Dreadful from start to finish.

Try Clarks Glass, Ringmer Business Centre.
Found them very reliable, good quality product, reasonably priced.

Notice one of the recommendations above is to a website without a physical address on the contact page.
That always rings alarm bells for me.
