I'm submitting a 1,000 word travel article to my local paper. What kind of payment could I expect?

I'm a UK resident and have just written a 1,000 word article on the subject of Spanish walking-tours.
I plan to submit this to my local newspaper later today, for use in their Saturday travel-column. I've tailored the style and format to their standard template, and I'm including 5 photos too.
The newspaper's readership is 50,000. How much payment could I expect - if any, seeing as it's my first (and unsolicited) submission? I'd be content to leave the remuneration to them, but I'd prefer to have an approximate figure in my head, in case they ask me how much I'm expecting.
