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.

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.
