Am i right in assuming that if shapmap can read wms services, and it can provide wms services, then it would be possible to set up as a cascading wms server?

To reply to my own question, yes this certainly seems possible.

Using the excellent demo's of the webserver, it was quite possible to cascade the WMS. The only slight issue was the lack of support for WMS 1.1.0 standard, but I don't think this would be too hard to implement.

There is a patch for WMS 1.1.1 in the patches section. It has some age, but might be worth to look at:

OK thanks for that. I will look at that, but I might be able to just stick with the 1.3.0 implementation.
