    This is a fantastic report with wonderful photos. I'm learning a lot about domestic switchgear from the comments too.

    Neat place...you are certainly setting the pace round these parts! Lots of reports and potential locations for me to shamelessly piggy back on....thanks for the shares.

    interesting place, the only recent bit of electrical gear is the digital electric meter, as the property still has its supply, someone is paying the bill, as otherwise it would be disconected.
    Maybe this building feeds outbuildings on the farm that are still in use?
    As previously mentioned, the tails to the MEM pot fuse board have been disonnected, so its looking like the house wiring is all dead.

    Thanks all! The bungalow is right by the entrance into the farm, which uses one of those automatic opening gates. Could it be possible that it is providing power for that gate?

    You might be right there Gromr123. Could be with that bit of SWA out of the top.

    I must admit that I like to stop, stand there and study the dodgy or otherwise electrics inside buildings, Just trying to find out how things worked.
    Sounds like there are a few people who do this out there! Phew. At least I'm not that weird then.
