Cut BM on S angle SW face. LandLine also shows FB on N face, 4.1m from W angle of house, which has since been extended considerably. On previous visit, got the impression the FB would be in porch, if still present, but can't be certain it's not hidden by vegetation. Way into garden has since been barred. Spoke to owner today, who thought FB probably lost to extension, some years ago.
