Hi, just wanted to know the depth to dig the trench for an armoured cable to an outside shed. I've read that the reg are a bit opaque but considering the mrs found the existing cable about one inch down (a standard orange cable, looks like its off a flymo cable - it is live as the shed lights and sockets work) I want to make sure the new one is at a safe depth. I was planning to dig down 450mm, then lay 150mm of sand on top, and ice it off with some of that warning tape. Then when I get the electrician in to do other bits we are planning, he can connect up and do the dangerous stuff.
