Something odd has happened and SSH now works. Yesterday morning I checked my IP address with 'whatismyip' again and it had changed. So I put *that* address in at the website and now everything works.
I'm as much at a lost to know why it works as I was to know why it didn't.
Many thanks to Chris for replying. In this case I didn't event get the chance to try his advice.
