Dead printed circuit boards for London art project?

Where can my sister (in London) find or buy dead printed circuit boards for an art project? The larger the better, the cheaper the better, what they used to be doesn't matter.

What about a junkyard or perhaps a second hand computer store (if an old motherboard would work)?

Do they need to be empty or does she want them with components? And do they have to be flat components?

Response by poster: No, components aren't a problem. She'd prefer the boards with them on, if possible.

She could find PC board fabrication houses and ask for their rejects (probably without components).

You may want to find a place that recycles them, and call them. After all, this sounds like a recycling project. Here's one in Essex...

This was in the US, but I went to a fairly techy college and there were always computer parts laying about waiting to be trashed or recycled. I used a bunch once for a bad "robot" costume. I don't know what schools are in London, but maybe that would be an option.
