Our old “key hole shaped” stop-cock in the street has done the house proud. We have a key on a long pole to turn it off, should it need turning off.
A couple of years ago it was changed into a new plastic box which apparently uses a different key, a black key, which is tucked inside the newer plastic box, out in the street ( didn’t know that ). The old pole key is obsolete.
Thames Water are now going around changing all the old key hole style stop-cocks for plastic boxes, which also come with a key inside them, a blue key. The black and blue keys are different, but are inside the boxes in the street.
The stop-cock with a black key needs to be turned until the water stops, the blue key only needs a small turn to close it.
Just spoken to a neighbour who also didn’t know there was supposed to be a key inside their box, and there has never been one, so they use a wrench……
