Thanks for the replies and useful advice. The house is a livett-cartwright construction. The frame is made of steel stanchion rods and the walls built with concrete slabs. The squeeking became much worse after central heating was installed. What are herringbones? Given the advice about checking out the joists, I am considering getting a builder/joiner to check it out as it seems I need a pro for the job.

read my post , the only way is to resrew the timber battens to the steel joists via the angle iron , sounds complicated but it easy , cost you about £20 . steve
