Cedar strip in the UK

Hi there,
Does anyone know where I can get cedar strip planks in the UK? I have looked on the internet and the only supplier seems to be Robbins. I received a quote from them for bead and cove planks and was shocked at the price per plank which for an 18 foot boat worked out at approximately 9 a strip of which I need 60 odd. This price makes my project prohibitively exepensive and I find it hard to beleive there isn't some other option. I'd be grateful if someone could give some advice on a good supplier or a good planking alternative to Cedar as my only option appears to be Pine.

Thanks

Mark
