The OP already identified, earlier in the thread, as being from :-

Wateringbury in Kent

Thanks, Mr Geek. There is so much information in this thread that my brain is beginning to feel a bit addled!

WG, Sorry but at that distance I won't be able to "take a look".

The grey cable goes through into the garage and up the wall into the ceiling which is directly below the socket with the solid blue and solid white wires on the first floor.

I see the sockets have numbers, like F0426.

Are all the numbers different?
What is the number of the socket "with the solid blue and solid white wires on the first floor"?

Can you confirm that the BT pair is Blue and White AND the pair feeding your house is SOLID Blue and SOLID White? All the photos ofthe rear of your sockets have shown White with a Blue stripe I think.
If I'm correct, then we haven't yet found the first socket (or possibly there's a junction box). On the other hand if it''s white with a blue stripe then you need to determine the 1st socket as advised previously

WG,

Things are starting to become clearer.

Into the backing boxes of each of the sockets, except the end of the daisy-chain, you have two grey cables?

Before you removed the orange wires, every socket had a pair of orange wires connected, except for the end of the daisy-chain (identified above) and the first socket (which should really be an NTE5A). Can you remember which socket is the latter? Please identify it by the explicit URL to its picture.

Once you have your IDC insertion tool, go to that socket and remove one pair of wires (2 & 5) from one of the grey cables. It is a 1:1 chance that you have disconnected the "extension" wiring. Plug a phone into that socket. Does the phone work?

If yes, label the grey cable with the still-connected pair as "incoming BT Pair" and the disconnected grey cable as "Extensions".

If no, then disconnect the currently attached grey cable and re-attach the pair from the previously disconnected cable.

Re-check with a phone. And then label the cables appropriately.

The report back. smile
