    I would say that's a digital timeclock at first glance. What do the instruction leaflets say ?

    I stupidly didnt take a snap of the instructions, was on a flying visit. The brand suggests its for or from a caravan oddly...

    I took these other pictures though and could not identify a trip nor the reason behind there being both a digital and analogue meter. This combined with the mystery timer has us very confused.

    Are there any storage heaters in the house ?

    The enclosure was made by CEC plug in systems, a local company linked to Bonus electrical, who predominantly made gear for the local caravan manufacturing firms. It is just a plastic box in essence though and nothing to do with the timeclock as that will have been purchased separately.

    The only thing in the house similar to this is a towel rail that is both plumbed in to central heating and mains powered.

    No cess pit, no pump - its a Victorian terrace house that had a considerable extension 15 years ago. Fairly standard property.

    There is a garage but that has its own consumer unit ... for context - this is the house on right move.

    They are actually the correct breakers for those boards, MK breakers at the time were merlin C60 but with MK branding put on the front. The earlier MK LN type MCBs were Siemens rebadged

    What was the "electrician" looking at?

    The spacing factor for that trunking is looking spot on too, I take it these 'sparks' don't think it needs applying in domestic as I see this all the time.
