Go on www.bmfa.org club finder and contact a couple of those. There are a few in Durham. A bit of tuition will work wonders.

I fully agree with ITSME please don't try to go it alone, join a local club and take their advise with regard to aircraft, radio etc. they will then appoint an instructor  who will save you a lot of money and teach you to fly, Thank god you've seen the light, now you will experience the real fun of the hobby.
Take off optional --- landing essential..
