They have put a meter outside my house although I don't use it. When i had a plumber in he was able to turn the water off there, so I suspect it would be the same for you. Take a look and see what is possible.

Cheers OG,I have had a look at it,it is quite deep but reachable and there does appear to be a tap behind the meter.Will give it a try when weather is better. picture here...http://i58.tinypic.com/28btpqr.jpg.

Thanks for that SlackAlice.
Refer to the instruction that should have come with your water meter.

Dustypuss,no instructions whatsoever were left by Yorkshire Water after fitting.However a follow up letter was received informing me how meter readings were obtained.
Yes, use the tap next to the meter.

One thing though ......... don't expect to wind it like a conventional stopcock. It will most likely be a "quarter turn" valve.
