If you have been using the Pentax Me and have been happy with it, why not try looking for a used Pentax ME Super, this is the same basic camera as you already have, but with the addition of manual overisde . Any lenses you have will also fit this camera, so you only need to purchase a body, the can often seen for sale on Ebay. A good basic Pentax with full manual settings would be the Pentax K1000, this has been the workhorse for many students and still produces good results. The pentax MZ is also a manual camera.Any of the pentax maunual cameras may be worth considering. You could stay well within your price range and more than likely pick up a couple of lenses, tubes, or converters for your £150 budget.
A Chinon CE-4 is very similar to the Pentax manual cameras and would also be worth a look if you want to do things on a low budget and have some left over for lenses, this camera will take the Pentax lenses as well.
Hope this may have helped.

I'm from the US, not sure what the exchange rate is now, but if you want to go pretty old school, I have a Minolta X-700 thats pretty good, very lightweight if you are into nature/walking photography, I'm not sure how it functions in studio photography, but it works fine in outdoor/landscape. You can get one for about 100 US$ on ebay or similar sites.
