Little Watty, star of EXARO’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 EXARO 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.
In his travels, Little Watty has learnt that some buildings can be as famous for their purpose or occupants as they are for any particular architectural significance. This certainly applied to his most recent destination, which occupies an 80 acre site with a spectacular view, where buildings have stood since the 16th century. The present building, considered by its owners to have no great architectural merit, has gained fame as the home of a pugnacious former Prime Minister. Although Watty was greatly impressed by his visit, by the time he left his head was spinning with the words which helped make this leader memorable. He did find it rather confusing. There were so many – or was it so few? And who was going to iron the curtain?
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 famous residence. Little Watty is still a little muddled, as his message is “You have to be in it to Winston it!”
