    Hi, recently bought a house and just slightly revising kitchen layout.

    In picture 1, after plastering I noticed this little metal covering next to an old pipe clip. Can anyone advise what this is likely to be? It is in the way of a cupboard, but I am just thinking of chasing the back of the cupboard out and leaving it the hell alone.

    In picture 2, I am told this is a gas connector for a cooker. I am planning a gas cooker, but I ideally need the connector moved so it can be connected easy from just to the right of the lower electrical socket. If the connector stays where it is, then it will be hard to connect/disconnect once kitchen is in as will be half way down a cabinet and upstand will prevent access from above.... Can I just unclip from holders for now and swing to the left so it doesnt get in the way and when gas engineer come to fit new gas cooker, he can sort out with new pipe/whatever?

    Don't swing it anywhere. The chances are it will start to leak gas from the disturbed joint. Work out where you want it and get a registered gas person in to move it properly. The other plug is likely to be capping off a gas pipe. It may be an old redundant pipe but your gas man can check that for you too.
