Looking for a good Labrador breeder near London.

We are thinking about getting a puppy and would like to find a good, reputable Labrador breeder in the London area. Some complications are 1) that we are moving back to Canada next summer and are still unsure if we should wait until we return home before doing this, and 2) a very energetic 4 year old who loves dogs but doesn't realize that he needs to calm down around them (he hugs every dog he meets in public, tries to walk them, gets upset when we say it's time to say bye etc.. However, he did spend about 20 minutes with an 8 week old Lab the other day and was surprisingly well behaved.)
One thing I've been told is that the breed line in the UK is somewhat better than the one in North America. I don't know if this is relevant to us as we've never talked about breeding (and most likely wouldn't). I do like the look of the smaller Labs here in the UK (I believe they are called the "gundog" line).
Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
