Horticultural grit

I am very frustrated to find that it is near impossible to get this locally (Sussex) unless you buy whopping great dumpy bags of it and at a huge cost. All I want is normal non decorative stuff in decent sized bags not weedly little ones which re decorative and cost a fortune. I need good normal horti-grit to lighten my soil and add drainage. I want it available now. 

Why is it so difficult....nowhere has it in stock, not DIY stores, builders merchants or garden centres. Its frustrating me...so many hurdles.

I put coarse sandpaper collars around my most vulnerable plants, it has had some success but watch the wind doesn't blow them away. I gave up on eggshells alone, I also use crushed seashells now. (the sandpaper lasts a while but get wet eventually).
