No I don't live in the UK, I live in the US, and recycled R-12 is running about $70/lb or about $200 to recharge an old system. That's why I advocated R-134a if it was not already made to use it, as it's only about $2/lb in 30 lb cylinders or $5-$6/lb in the little cans you can get anywhere. It's still not cheap to have a shop do anything related to the A/C but if the system hasn't lost it's vacuum anyone can buy the stuff to top it off.
