I'm a bit confused as to how the sockets in the kitchen have been wired up, I assumed that this was a ring main circuit as i have replaced a couple of sockets at one end of the kitchen and it looked like there was one cable coming in and another coming out going to the next socket etc.
Now I i'm not so sure, i was going to replace the socket at the other end of the kitchen with a new one and then run a spur off this but when i removed the socket i found 3 cables coming out, one cable coming in, one going to another socket in the kitchen then one going upstairs which connects to a socket in the bedroom. There is also another cable in the kitchen which is connected to the other sockets in there this is why i assumed it was a ring main? The strange thing is that if i disconnect the cable going upstairs the upstairs socket still works, there is also another cable going to the sockets upstairs.
Not sure if I have explained this very well but if anyone has any ideas as to what is going on i'd be very greatful!!
