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.


Sight and sound can be memorable, but Watty is also impressed by sight and smell and this is how the historic parkland that was the subject of his latest jaunt left its mark. The green credentials of this 560 acre National site are undeniable. It boasts a spectacular dome, the Great Glasshouse, which is the world’s largest single spanned glasshouse that conserves some of the most endangered plant species on the planet. The site’s collection of over 8,000 different plant varieties provided many scents to please Watty’s inquisitive gardener’s nostrils. The adventures of Lili Lloyd, the location’s very own cartoon character, made him chuckle and when the site’s visitors and supporters began singing its praises he was more than happy to join in.

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 unique National parkland – remembered by Watty with a fond “There’s Lovely!”
