Update.

2 quotes received. 1GAS are looking for £1150 incl. the meter. SGN have quoted £700.60 but I'd need to sort the meter out elsewhere. EDF have priced me £80 for that.
I think SGN & EDF have got the job.

Best to ask your future supplier may be subsidized, price will depend a lot on which side the mains in the road is, hopefully the nearest side to your property

Thanks Lectrician,

I did a bit of digging ( not literally ) and found some guideline prices from SGN, who are responsible for South & South East, for connection up to the house, excl the meter for approx £600 excl. VAT
Cost based on the mains being no more than 40m from the house and no unforeseen hold-ups or obstructions.

New Gas Supply
Sep 4th, 2016, 1:05pm
 
Hi,

Have been house hunting and found a property that ticks nearly all the boxes with the exception that it currently has no gas connection to the mains ( electric storage heaters & cooker plus solid fuel rayburn for the hot water )
The adjacent houses in the street are connected to the gas main so I know that there is a supply available.

Any idea what it would cost to get the Gas board to connect me up?

Thanks

Gammy
