    The valve has snapped inside so would like to just get a new tap and use the innards.

    Is that tap head a left-hand thread onto the tap body? If not a left-hand thread, then there's a reasonable chance you can fit the head from a new stopcock.

    If it is a left-hand thread, then I'm not going to say you won't be able to use the spindle from a modern tap, but I will call it a long shot. Not aware of where you would get a left-hand taphead from.

    Good luck. Let us know how it goes!

    Personally I'd try the inards from a BS1010 stop cock.

    It may work but the body looks massively different.
