Precise location confirmed from recent OS list - "FL BR 614 RLY GOODS SHED SW FACE 3.4M W ANG". SW (trackside) face of large goods shed. BM 96.99m on LandLine. Vegetation recently cut back, so possible to check location. No FB found, but suspicious hole in just the relevant location. FB has evidently gone, and the goods shed itself under threat from redevelopment {update December 2006 - goods shed is due for imminent demolition}
