Is it safe to assume this isn't being used for the mains to the Kerrowdown castle? Did you remove the outer cover/panel in the interests of art, or is this a permanent situation? Great textures.

No we're still on candles and the odd oil lamp in the good room.

No the photojournalist in me prevails... this is just as I found it.

On the down side, many generations of "sparkys" unemployed or made redundant.

I've heard that a 22 cartridge will fit - and when you get a short, at least you hear about it.

Thanks for that... I'll pass on that "sound" advice to Aslyfox, as he's in charge of all installation works.

Apart from all the safety issues, you've done your typical job of turning something ignored into photo gold

Joseph Lucas was born in 1834 and started his company in 1860, so looking at this, I think it was there before he was born...
