Not that I know of. I took me years to find some decent ones. All of the stones lying around London are useless, either made of flint or soft rock. 

I finally found some when the local council (out of a desire to purposely generate the most gridlocked piece of road in Britain) decided to reduce a busy 3 lane either side stretch of road near where I live to a single lane and a bus lane each side. They put in a massive 3 lane wide centre divide (the old one was already one lane wide) decorated with 1000s of massive pebbles loose in pits. All kinds of rock and I got some great hammerstones finally. 

My suggestion is you try some garden centres or decorative rock sellers, tell them you have a huge garden to decorate and ask for a few some samples.

Managed to get a bag from the garden centre. Nice variety of sizes but could do with a couple more bigger ones. They'll get me through for now though. Smile
