Thanks to Sean and others - I am nearly there. I'm new to Linux and svn so
please bear with me.

Here is a portion of etc/apache2/subversion.conf which IS working :) with
an embedded tag showing where it can be made to fail ...

# <working>
<Location /repos>
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath /srv/svn/repos

    # <fails>
    # our access control policy
    # AuthzSVNAccessFile /srv/svn/user_access/access-policy
    # </fails>

    #<moved from LimitExcept>
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "repositories"
    AuthUserFile /srv/svn/user_access/auth-file
    # only authenticated users access repositories
    Require valid-user
    #</moved from LimitExcept>

    # move 'Require valid-user' to here
    # to provide public read only access
    # and require a valid user for GET etc below
    <LimitExcept GET PROPFIND OPTIONS REPORT>
       #
    </LimitExcept>
</Location>
# </works>

When AuthzSVNAccessFile is un-commented userid's and passwords stop being
recognised. Here is the content of the above AuthzSVNAccessFile ...

# groups and access policy
[groups]
testing = miked
everyone = miked, rob

[testing:/repos/testing]
@testing = rw
@everyone = r
#eof

Any ideas ??

TIA very much

Mike
