I've pinched this from a site.
Should give you a good idea of what size cable you have.

Then again yours is stranded... :(

I’d say 6mm with a 2.5mm cpc at a total guess
I agree, although I don't really approve of guesswork in electrical installation ;)

prfobably imperial 7/.044 or maybe 7/.052
Or 7/036, with a 1/044 cpc,
Don't think it is, because it says BASEC down the side and they didn't exist until after metric cables came in.

Wow... You zoomed in to see that Lucien (BASEC). I could just make it out after max zoom!
