I can vouch for this one.  It was very good.  The EKGs really give it good English hop character.

But the OP is trying to stay away from EKG. And Fuggle.

Both of which, I believe, are almost required for a good English ale.

+1  At least an ale with classic hop character (i.e. Fuller's)

hopfenundmalz:
You can make very true to style English pale ale with all Challenger hops.

I like Crisp MO, or Warminster MO.

As for specialty grains, just some medium crystal, or some carastan ~35L are good. A little torrified wheat works well. 

You want a pale ale water profile. See Brunwater.

Most of the English yeast are good choices. I like 002/1968, 1469, 1275 for bitters and pale ales.

Some kettle sugars will help dry it out if you wish. I use turbinado if I have it. Lyles Golden syrup works well.

This is on my list to use.  As well as their treacle for my old ale.
