Default Cork for basing?

Does anyone know a good site to get hold of some cork I can break up and use for basing? Been trying to find a good supply but I can't seem to find one myself

these guys are good, but cork comes in different types, i assumed you meant granulated, but it comes in tiles or as bark in its natural form.

What you are looking for is some cork board. Most craft stores should carry some form of it. From the looks of it that is the right kind that you want for basing.

If you have a model train shop around they usually sell plenty of this - you might be able to get a smaller roll there.
