Connecting power supply to outbuilding - underground?


Recommended Posts


I was wondering on the normes/cable spec. etc for running a circuit (or two, one lighting, one for prises) to an outbuilding around 20m at the back of a courtyard/garden?

Is there such a thing as armoured cable? Should one run the main to the building and position an entirely new fuse box?

Many thanks in advance..

Our Sparky ran two mains out.  One to the garage where he installed a new (small) breaker box and one to an outbuilding to another breaker box.  The outbuilding has washing machine/drier together with prises and lighting.  I think that's a better way to go as it gives you flexibility should you wish to add more circuits at a later date (exterior lighting etc).

Not sure about the cabling regs ours is above ground.
