New home for old computing books - free on collection (UK)

I am having a re-org of the workspace and have decided to release a number
of books acquired over the last 3/4 decades but I am in a quandary as I
can't store them, don't think the local Cat's Protection League can handle
them and I am reluctant to consign them to the skip. While I appreciate that
they may not qualify as true vintage currently they will be before too long,
like PL/1 primers were years ago when folks were skipping them. I have
between two to three dozen (some big) and won't impose here by listing them
all but they include such nuggets as  'Secrets of Windows 2000 Server', 'MTS
Programming in Visual Basic', Kernighan's 'Software Tools in Pascal',
'Understanding and Programming COM+' and 'Developing Professional
Applications in Windows 95 and NT Using MFC'.  I have most if not all of the
accompanying CD's. I am afraid my 'Introduction to Programming using Fortran
77' and 'Lepton and Baryon Number Violation in Particle Physics,
Astrophysics and Cosmology' along with my Amiga development manuals are not
up for grabs (cold, dead hands, etc.)

I can't expect anyone crazy enough to take the whole lot (but free for the
collection if you like and welcome) but does anyone know anywhere who would
take them and keep them for posterity?  Just can't stand the thought of good
books being destroyed.

Please post here if you can help then we can take it off-list.
