Peterborough, Guildhall, S face of pillar at SW angle. Top inch or so of FB visible, though partly mortared over. Remainder of FB hidden behind top step.

Visited on 14th March 2004 by RHW. Condition: Destroyed.
Current Town Hall is now Bridge St/St Peters Rd, probably too new, has no exposed S face. Building with G5216 has 2 BMs shown on LandLine but no other BM found on that structure.
