Ravenstone, #48 Leicester Road, W face. BM 149.21m on LandLine. Visible over side gate. Excellent condition. Owner knew a little about it and was very interested to hear more - among other subjects, had a discussion about whether the traces of green colour were original paint or oxides of copper.

Not found on The Hollies, Maple Villas or SE corner of x-rds. Owner of most likely house at x-rds was quite interested; seems some confusion about which is/was Holly Villas
