if your saying about the cpc's thats how they used to be wired years ago, no insulation just twisted together on top of the jb.

Probably will have been done by one of those time served sparks that was a trainee for 150 years, been in the job for a zillion years and moans on about 5 week wonders on this forum :icon10: (I'll get my tin hat)

There's good and bad in all walks of life, regardless - but to do something like that on a recent rewire just isn't cricket :)

Well at least he had the brains to tie in the earths as I have seen worse mind this was probably done in the 70-80s when earth sleeving was expensive I worked for a big firm and it was rationed to the extent that you stripped bits of a 2.5 single earth cable to get some so put it down to the sign of the times

Came across a good few in a huge Victorian stately home that I was doing a PIR on last year. Must have found 20 odd in all. Rewired in the 70s by the Electricity board guys, along with no earth sleeving anywhere, metal switch plates unearthed etc etc. One of the sparkies is still around, should I mention it? Lol

Ah, the good old days:tongue:
