I will get a panel mounted fuse and fit on side of box next to where the wire connects to box that way I can change without opening box up , not sure what size yet , the power distribution box has it’s own blade fuses built in .

 UPDATE So finally the power is nearing completion to the pier ,trench run from shed to pier used 32mm pipe sealed joints and used Henry hoover to suck a pull cord through pipe ,1mm twin cable ordered off ebay , usb cable to run in, though may need to check the 5m cable is long enough for requirements, trench filled back in, Garden  starting to look less like a bomb site .

Well that's not moving far and it looks tidy as well. What's your Kite going to think though, you have nicked his chicken stand David

Don't these things always take longer than expected. Real life has a habit of gettting in the way. Always worth the effort in the end though. 🙂
