Like yourself I yearned for the clicking and romance of a hand-push lawnmower and bought a Bosch push along from B&Q for my smallish lawn in West Yorkshire. I think that it was about £50 pounds but has been a great investment. Its very light and I can cut the grass in half the time. My Flymo used to blow grass into the borders and all over the patio even though it was meant to collect it all. It also saves time getting the power lead, extension cable, circuit breaker out from under the detritus in the garage. I actually look forward to cutting the grass these days and can easily manage 2 or 3 cuts a week as a result! I'm converted!! For second hand ones look on e-bay, your local Freecycle group, car boot sales etc, but like I say I'm really happy with the one from B&Q. Hope it helps.
