House, W gable c.0.5m from SW angle. Result:-) I pass this from time to time and finally got round to having another look. Maybe the cladding has been altered since my last visit? probably not. Anyway, top half of FB is visible in flower bed. Shouldn't be hard to dig down to reveal number ... with owner's permission! Probably not normally visible, when bed planted. Strange the OS should record it as Destroyed.

Visited on 1st September 2004 by RHW. Condition: Probably destroyed.
Old cottage stone cladded, no sign of FB.
