Is it just the UK or is the TNS clock incorrect the world over ?

No, I believe it is approximately correct in western mainland Europe (maybe not in Portugal, but in France, Germany, Benelux, Italy, etc.).

I think they want to see themselves as supernational, and so stick to UTC whatever the local time may be.

More lilely, Dave has not worked out how to determine the local time zone for the PC calling the TNS page up, so does not know how many hours to add or subtract from UTC for each PC.

It's not wrong! It's bang on!

And Kadie, whenever you say "it's the whole world", surely there's supposed to be a megalamaniacal laugh after accompanied perhaps by lightning?

Yes indeed! And it's raining with a bit of thunder thrown in for good measure.

Here's another hut photo. It's a photo of a photo, but might be a bit better...

Is that Queen Anne's lace I see growing there towards the front of picture very faintly showing and then along the left side of the larger bush to your left? Looks like queen Anne's lace.. we have it here!

It looks like it, doesn't it? We do also get a lot of Hogweed - this is the really big version, which can give a terrible rash.

I don't think I know Hog weed by name, perhaps by sight!
