Geological data for Great Britain? The BGS I would have thought (but it looks as if you've been there already):

Check out onegeology, from there you can get access to WMS data.
http://portal.onegeology.org/

WMS = Web mapping service, which is images, but maybe that is something you can work with? Save a large WMS image and then trace automatically from there, maybe?
