Home made trunking ?
bloody philistine. tha'ts bespoke cable trunking from c. 100 years ago. VIR insulated singles. installed when we took a pride in the work and didn't need to chuck it in for price. was generally a joiner installed the trunking, then spark would follow with cables.

I have a few samples of it in the shed. Cap and casing/case I believe it was called ?

I'm sure I have seen pics of it (maybe on here) where it, or a similar design, was used as a skirting top/architrave to take wires round the house on the surface.

Yep this is a circa 1850’s £1 million drum near the seafront down here...

personally i prefer the lead sheathed twin with galv. JBs, the cable clamps providing continuity of the lead cpc. again, when work was done to a high standard, not down to a price. (and i just wet my pants :disrelieved: :disrelieved: :disrelieved: ).
 
Have probably done or worked on over 300 rewires and have never seen this type of wooden trunking.
Come across and pulled out plenty of vir and old lead cable but not seen it boxed in trunking like in the picture.
Split tube and wooden back boxes are quite common on most rewires I do.

you probably not come across this type of wiring then? note the roof structure is made from real timber, not weak willie trusses.
