Looks to me like it's one of the conversion's using the same type of hammered heavy barrel as fitted to the L39A1 and L42A1. Being 7,62 the ,303 mag will just serve as a loading platform for single shot use. It would be worth trying to find a 7,62 mag for it; although they are expensive these days.

As for value; it's a shame that it's had the scope mount fitted; with a target sight it would be worth more. Dose the mount fitting use original screw holes? if so then it should not effect value too much.
I would recommend contacting someone like Richard Stork at Devizes Gunsmith's for a value. He has good knowledge of these types and has some good stuff for sale too.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Any values from the U.S. would be way off for the U.K. I'll let a few of our English friends answer that as they will have a much better idea than I would.
I'm in agreement with Zed on his comments.
I think the scope mount is attached via the existing ejector screw hole (with a longer bolt) & the pivots for the original rear sight pivot pin. Assuming they haven't been reamed or anything you could (in the US) get it back to a factory micrometer peep for about US$50.00 & 15 minutes work. That looks like a B-Square mount which is No Drill No tap.
Not sure if factory sights will zero with the target front though.

it was made at ROF fazakerly , in 1952 if my reference is correct , it is pre-contract rifles , it was made as a 303 so was converted to the 308 but i cannot tell you who did it because i dont have references on that , 

i think it was sported beyond that conversion or at that conversion , perhaps for hunting ? has a look of some of the military conversions as the forearm is original and modified , but it has a lot of look of a hunting conversion as the butstock looks more commercial , just my 2 cents - nice rifle ,
