I'd like to replace my old back boiler with a modern boiler. I am rather nervous of the upheaval! So any recommendations of who I could get to do this? Quality more important than cost (just!)

Unfortunately, if you have a back boiler you will almost always have major upheaval to replace it with a modern boiler. Also, if you replace with a modern boiler your monthly gas bills will be lower, but you are unlikely to ever recoup the installation costs.
Lewes has good installers, and let them advise you. But make sure they are local, otherwise they have less/no accountability.

Lewes Plumber would say that Lewes has good installers, wouldn't he / she? My experience was that 70% of Lewes firms didn't bother to return my call, 20% were ruinously expensive, and the other 10% (who I tried to use) didn't keep to what was agreed and had to be written-off as a wasteful false start. The firm I used - and hence recommended - were excellent, despite not coming from Lewes.
Other people may share my view that "Lewes" is used as a cash-cow by many companies and traders, and that much better value can be secured by casting a slightly wider net including Burgess Hill, Brighton and Eastbourne, for instance.

In response to local chap I must say you've been extremely unlucky
I can say that most of my local competitors are very good and their charges are similar to mine
I've been to several jobs where problems have arisen on fairly new installs. When asked why the client doesn't get the original installer back they say he's from such and such and won't come back !!!!
Shop local and support the economy you live in !!!

I would hazard a guess that:
a) very few people even notice
b) half of the very few that do think it's the work of a few... more
