Too Vague

You have been too vague with your reguest. I would just put a clear plastic roof and not deal with windows unless you want to see out.

I have a 9'x15' that I have 2 little windows on either side of the barn-style doors. I'm going to say they are 18"x24". I'd have a skylite up top, or something similar, but it gets so darn hot here. I have another that is 10'x8'(?) that has only 1 little window beside a normal door. I don't know how much in British pounds, or how much the going rate would be in your area.

Did that help any? You need to know what you want before you try to explain it to somebody.

I agree with the vague comment. What is the shed used for? Why do you think you need windows? I have a 4'x12' shed. No windows at all. If it's just to get light in there to see what your doing, I'd put in 2, 2' x3' units, one on each side. They run about $100. per unit for vinyl or about $50. for storms.
