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.


Little Watty was intrigued when he was invited to enjoy the bars of an ancient city. Naturally, the thought of drinking never entered his furry head. Watty has a sweet tooth and his first thought was chocolate, especially when he heard the name of the city! Understandably, Watty was a bit deflated when he arrived at his destination and found that the bars in question were gates through massive stone walls. The disappointment did not last long, however, as Watty was soon marvelling at the impressive medieval stonework which covers and replaces earlier walls, built first by the Romans and then the Vikings. No longer needed as a defence for the city, the walls that remain are a Scheduled Ancient Monument and are Grade 1 listed. All in all, a really great trip, thought Watty, as he snuffled through the spring flowers on the old Viking embankment.

To be in with a chance of winning your very own cuddly Little Watty Baxter, simply look at the photograph and tell us where this very special structure can be found. By the way, Watty did get his chunky chocolate bar – he got a Duo!
