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.


Although he is not sure what is going on, even Little Watty likes the excitement of this time of year. Lots of lights, lots of fun and, the thought makes him shiver, lots of people wanting it to snow. Sometimes, people are completely daft! He wondered if the Christmas Spirit had inspired the choice of his latest visit, as he found himself viewing one of the largest department stores in the world, famous for its hampers, bags and Christmas lights. The present building occupies 90,000sqm, with 330 departments spread across seven floors, a frontage of terracotta tiles, Art Nouveau windows, all topped by a baroque dome.

The store boasts a motto meaning ‘All things for All People, Everywhere’, so Watty was not surprised to learn that some 15 million customers visit the store each year. However, Little Watty, was very disappointed to be told that the store’s special treat each year is a cuddly Bear! Our furry little chum bore this disappointment bravely, commenting: “I’d rather star in every issue of BSEE than in a Knightsbridge store once a year!”

To be in with a chance of winning your very own cuddly Little Watty Baxter, simply look at the photograph and tell us which famous department store Watty recently visited.
