We didn't have any more luck finding a connection to that ring last night. Dan is trying to find out whether this room ever had power.
In the meantime we have put a collection of extension leads by the door that allow power to be run in from the hall on a temporary basis.
Does anyone have a reel of twin-and-earth cable (the flat solid-core stuff used for wiring up rooms) lying around? We need some to run new wiring from the consumer unit, and if we can't find where the existing ring goes we'll need it to rewire all the sockets from scratch.
