Yup It's pretty rubbish. I asked New Balance in the UK why they don't stock the wide versions that they stock in the US, and just recieved a bunch of flim flam from them.Have you tried any of the vivobarefoot trail shoes? No idea what the official width is, but they're reasonably wide.
Try Cotswold outdoor in Bournemouth, and also now Go Outdoors has opened in Poole, they may have some.
Cotswold sell Inov8's which i find quite wide (i have wide feet too and am thinking of these for more serious trails) and if you like minimalist shoes then the Merrell trail glove range have a wide toe box.
If you manage to find any to fit, guaranteed you'll probably get them cheaper online anyway!
Think to actually get any shoes designed as wide fitting you will have to go to the US. Very few manufacturers, even those who make wide fitting elsewhere will sell them in the UK.
so far its the ladies 269 rocklite...yes ladies have a smaller heal which is good for me,i dont care as long as it fits !
still not 100% as thinking of something ok for trail and road
