Hello At a recent house viewing i found a switched socket in the hallway and landing, just above the skirting board, and i have no idea what it is. I have attached an image, but basically it is a faceplate with a switch in the centre, then in the bottom left corner is a reversed D shape hole. Can anyone advise please?! Thanks
Yes. It is a switched flex outlet. (The flex exits via the reversed D) They were often used to isolate electric storage heaters, judging by its location (Near skirting board) I would say that is what it was for.
