Where’s Watty?

Little Watty, star of BSEE’s regular competition, continues to travel the UK, exploring interesting places, admiring the built environment and considering how he can reduce his carbon pawprint. Watty does like to have his picture taken as a memento of his travels and BSEE readers are given the chance each month to guess where he has been photographed. The lucky winners each receive a cuddly badger for correctly naming the places or landmarks that Watty has visited!

For those who have not yet made his acquaintance, Little Watty Baxter is the name chosen for the badger featured in the Baxi-SenerTec UK logo. The name Little Watty, short for Little Walter, is an apt choice because it alludes to the unit of output generated by combined heat and power technology. What some may not know is that Dachs, the name of the mini-CHP unit that is marketed in the UK by Baxi-SenerTec UK, is the German word for badger.


Our furry friend was delighted to arrive at his most recent destination, as he could add the name of Little Watty to a list of famous visitors that includes The Beatles, Mohammed Ali and Nelson Mandela. This special building, the vision of a Princely person, is of circular design and boasts a glazed dome covering an internal auditorium 185 feet wide by 219 feet long. Sadly, the Prince did not live to see the opening of this Royal Hall in 1871, but it became one of his legacies and bears his name. Little Watty was impressed to learn that some six million red bricks and 80,000 terracotta blocks were used in its construction and that it took only four years to build.

To be in with a chance of winning your very own cuddly Little Watty Baxter, simply look at the photograph and tell us the name of this building. Our cheerful chum clearly took his visit seriously, as he assured us that he was not amused!
