The E450? You're going to have to collect that in person.

Note that miles are about 5km long in Dorset, and driving two miles is
considered quite an achievement :)

The most obvious answer would be to acquire a car and take it over on the
ferry/Eurostar, however you've managed to pick about the furthest corners of
Britain to want stuff from and it's probably about a 2,000km round trip,
most of which will probably end up on A roads rather than motorways. You
might want to consider how many of these items you really want.
