GPS pointed to No. 1 Meadow View. The property has a porch (which is probably not original as the adjacent property of similar design doesn’t have one). Might still be inside the porch, though.

Riber, N face of cottage opposite Riber Manor. Location verified from old large scale maps. Nothing shown on LandLine. Location inspected on several occasions, but no trace found of FB. No obvious reason why it should have been destroyed, so most likely buried beneath raised road level. Subsequent examination of large scale maps of various dates indicates that #1 Meadow View has been extended on its northern face, so that the location of the FB would now be inside the building.
