Where’s Watty?

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.


Little Watty has always thought that for humans to have two legs less than a badger should be a disadvantage, so he greatly admires the way we outwit nature, making things like spacecraft, submarines and bicycles. It was no surprise, then, when his most recent destination turned out to be a special structure designed to turn trees into energy. Baffled by our understanding of numbers, Watty could only nod, he hoped wisely, on being told that this structure supplies the electrical needs of 70,000 Caledonian homes. The structure’s location, sadly best known for a terrible disaster, means Lockard’s Farm in Old Norse, whilst naming this up-to-date technological site needs joined up thinking – St evens and a small Highland farm!

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 very modern structure. When asked for a clue, Watty said cryptically “Log in …. Power up!”
