some sheets of clear perspex ?

They don't need to be too thick - I am making a plant house to replace the plastic jobs I used last year that didn't survive the winter.

cheap or as free as possible !

i will try and find the supplier i used to use, but we used a fibre glass type job and they were sent as 610 squares or 1210 by 610 which is a growers green house size, we founf that polycarb was cheaper than perspex and the other stuff i have seen is a 5 mm thick twin wall sheet aswell

try looking for LBS lyd some where in north yorkshire the do poly tunnels and horticultural supplies
 
I have gotten Acrylic sheet from this firm in Shepshed

Perpex dearer branded matierial.

avilable as cell cast or extruded sheet

Very often glass suppliers do perspex too.

I used to have a mobile food stall at shows, the 'glass' front was perspex, cut and moulded to shape by the local glass supplier - Melton Glass, not a lot of use to you as they would be too far away, but try a glass supplier :)

any good signmaker will have perspex and probably lots of offcuts as well
