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.


As soon as he learnt that he was to visit a building designed by Sir Christopher Wren and completed in 1692, Little Watty knew that he should be prepared for something out of the ordinary. This certainly applied when he found that a nearby famous attraction, nothing to do with the purpose of the building, was proudly celebrating its centenary. But this flowery upstart in no way upstaged the magnificent structure which, with both royal and military connections, has acquired a prestigious reputation that extends way beyond our shores. Watty was greatly impressed, as much by the building’s impressive facade as by the long red coats worn by some of its residents.

This made Little Watty wonder how many members of the animal kingdom were famous for their red coats, but he could only think of rare squirrely things that lived in trees, which to our ground-bound little friend is just incomprehensible!

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 very special building. There are no conditions – as Watty helpfully points out, thinking of his recent visit: “You don’t need to be a pensioner to enter!”
