At the described location. Out leading a walk for The Iregulars, LDWA and had chosen to stop at The Boar's Head for lunch. So the opportunity for geminiman and myself to nip out and have a look for this one was just too good not to miss. No problem in spotting what we were after. Basically nothing to add to previous reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in excellent condition.
