Hi Dave
Here is my mystery sax for your perusal, along with a pic of its foliage.  If the foliage also matches I think we've cracked it.  Let me know what you think.

Looks spot on to me Chris, that's another box you can tick.

We in New Zealand tend to look with bright green envy upon the perfect floral cushions of  saxifrages, on the UK show benches but honestly Ian, I think those plants scattered about your breeze block mountains are much more attractive. I'll be aiming for something like that if and when... ;)

Lesley - you must do no more than "think" about making breeze block mountains for several months at least - or else!

 You're right though, the Saxes look very much at home in this most unnatural of habitats

 And some are setting seed !

Setting seed! Oh yeah!!!

But you must let me THINK about such activities Maggi or I'll go totally stir crazy. And if I can think and plan now, I'll be ready to act when I'm allowed. As a matter of fact for the first week of my home help I felt quite guilty sitting reading while she did dishes, prepared meals and did the vacuum cleaning, never mind the washing, bathroom et al. But this week somehow it all seems quite normal and I think I could get used to a life of ease and general decadence quite easily. :-[ :P

Thanks for the ID Adrian.  How does it differ from paniculata Archdale?  Just curious...
