Does any one know the maximum rating per fuseway in brown wylex fuse boxes? ;)
Not just per way.......

The rating of the main switch and CU as a whole has to be taken into account!
That pipe joint is out of square too...

Older one way CU's were 30A rating. Not sure about the two ways, but the maximum switch rating of a brown wylex (not labelled with rating) is 60A, so it's still under!
Its perfectly safe! Thats what the green and yellow wire means!!! In anything goes wrong the g/y will save us!

Anyway, list of defects even I can see:

Mounting board not fixed correctly and looks like its been cut with a chainsaw
MCBs too big for the fusebox - maximum is 30A IIRC?
Proximity to plumbing - not sure on regs, but I dont like it.
If they are 10mm² cables, they will have struggled to get them into the terminal holes. I dread to see the inside, but I guess Rob has a photo for us!
No labelling.
Messy tails.
