LandLine shows Lime Kiln (disused). This is an area of humps and hollows incorporated into golf cse. There's a small old stone bldg, with a raised tee against its NW face. FB could be under this? Presence of a cancwelled stone-cut BM on S end of old stone wall 100m to N could suggest the FB was in vicinity.
