Some time in the next couple of months I'll get round to running power
to my shed. I've already posted here about the electrical design aspects
of it; this is a question about physical installation.
I will be connecting the submain (via a switchfuse) to a Henley block
before the consumer unit. The CU is inside the house, and the meter is
in a meter box outside. There's no reasonable route from the CU area to
the shed; what makes most sense mechanically is to fit the switchfuse
etc in the meter box, and run the SWA from there. However, there is a
tatty old label inside the box saying "for Board's equipment only". So,
1. Does this have any actual regulatory force behind it?
2. Is anyone likely to care?
The meter box is a typical white fibreglass thing embedded in the wall,
with a chipboard panel in the back to which the service fuse and meter
are screwed. I'm pretty sure there's room to add my extra bits in a tidy
