This one survives. The 2GL description is less than helpful. The FB is hidden deep in some shrubs. The NE (or E face) of the church has a semi-circular extension (an apse?). The FB is at the internal angle on the NE (or E) face at the SE (or S) end of the apse, facing E (or NE), as shown on the 1970-1972 1:1250 map.

Visited on 9th December 2005 by Calico. Condition: Probably destroyed.
New Church Centre tacked onto NE corner! However, I could see original brick and flint walls through the windows so fb may survive inside.
