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.
For obvious reasons, during his explorations Little Watty can spend much of the time looking up – but nothing he had seen before prepared him for a confrontation with a skyscraper! He knew from his initial investigations that he would be visiting a building designed to dominate the London skyline like an elongated pyramid, but on first sight he had to admit that he couldn’t see the point. But he was only stating a fact – he couldn’t see the point, as it was 1,083 feet above his upturned little face. Our furry friend was amazed that this exceptional building should be completely covered by some 11,000 panes of glass and he hoped that its occupants would remember they shouldn’t throw stones.
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 by which the building that had impressed him so much is generally known – and even Watty admits: “That’s Hard!”
