Default Wills

Help needed from any legalites out there.

I have a will that's pretty simple. Just a few beneficiaries.

I want to change a few points in it. If I just write it myself based on the old one and get it signed and witnessed will it be legally valid or do I have to have a lawyer validate it ?

If I do do it myself is there anything I need to do to close off the old one and make this one current. Is the bit about "I revoke all previous wills" sufficient.?

And before you ask. I have not left my S2000 to any of you.....

but why would I want to line an expensive lawyers pockets for something I can do myself ? I paid one to do the original and it was nearly £250 !

its just a 3 word change.
