Where can I find old recordings of British folk music?

Is there a British Isles equivalent to the Smithsonian Folkways
series of recordings? I'm interested in hearing real folk music--maybe from the 1900s to 1930s--not Fairport Convention-type bands that were influenced by old folk music. I'd love it if this music were freely downloadable online, but any suggestions for albums to buy would be appreciated, too. I'm hoping that there's something like this
online, but for English music. Thanks!
