    hi I want to take a feed from my consumer unit in the shed to a double light switch then to two lights. one switch for the first light and the second switch for the other light. I just cant seem to find the wiring diagram for this.

    Presumably the shed already has a lighting circuit?

    You dont really need a digram for one light.
    For two lights - do it twice.

    From Chivers' link:

    So WOE is the CU for? How many ways in it? What are they used for?

    And FYI - if you live in England or Wales and you need to create a new circuit for these lights you are supposed to apply for Building Regulations approval before you start work, or have it done by a registered electrician.
