A good quality, solid wood external door. Where from?

I've never had to buy an external door before. Initially I was surprised at how affordable they seemed. Now I know that there is, like everything, a range in terms of quality. This is our home for the foreseeable future and I want a seriously nice front door but I don't know how to judge a website. I keep seeing the same design repeatedly for the modern doors (not what I want - just something I've noticed), and I've seen sites advertise as offering "custom fitting" (but not custom made doors) and I'm worried that I don't know how to find what I want. What sort of trade makes a door? Have you splashed out on a seriously nice door? If so, I'd be grateful for any tips!

I had a beautiful front door made for me recently by a local joinery company who specialise in doors/windows. It was quite very expensive but I think worth it as the quality is fantastic, excellent security, v energy efficient and just looks right for the house. I went to look at the company's workshop and saw how they made the doors before I ordered it.

Thanks bluemarble. I will look up local joiner...ers!
