Google cattle guard or cable guard.  It's not a requirement, but good practice if prone to damage.

Protecting SWA cable
Nov 1st, 2015, 3:22pm
 
The underground cable from my outbuilding comes out of the ground and runs for about 2 feet up the outside wall of the house before going inside to the CU. It's clipped neatly to the wall and the entry hole has a rain cover. It's not in an area that makes it venerable to impact damage nor is it in direct sunlight.


Should the actual cable be further protected? eg by a galvanised channel or fine as it is ?
