Hi. I have bought a tip of a house – affordable – and have loads of repairs to do on it. This is one example of the electrics that I know needs some work! Please can you comment and advise me on what I’ll need to do/buy, safety and legal aspects etc? There are two garden sheds, where lighting and sockets are supplied via a spur that starts behind a socket situated in the spare room. The socket powers my computer etc, nothing else. The fuse in the main consumer unit (a modern one!) that “protects” this circuit is a MK LN5916 B16. Is this sufficient? The cable (twin core and earth, sheathed, 2.5mm² i THINK) exits tha house wall, then goes underground for 2 metres to first shed, where it feeds into an old (?cartridge?) 30A fuse (photos). Then on into a wall-mounted double socket (photo). This is where the real fun begins, I think. This double socket supplies, via plugs 1). the fluorescent light in this shed and 2). the next shed, 4 metres away. This second shed is larger, the cable runs underground to it, up the outside in plastic tubing(pic), and in to a fuseboard (pic) containing a 40A, 30mA RCD and a MK B6 and MK B16 circuit breakers. From here, supply splits to feed 3 fluorescent lamps and 3 double socket outlets, plus two exterior spotlamps. I’m sure that the feed to the second shed needs to done in a way that does not involve a plug, please can you comment? Both sheds are quite damp. I don’t have a clue if the cable is enclosed in any armour, I don’t intend on digging anywhere near until I do. Any advice will be most gratefully received. Many thanks.
