Revisit. Courtesy knock first, owner happy for photography. This house is now completely different from the old house which stood here in 1993. By 2009 conversion work was underway. The flush bracket has survived intact in its original position.

No one at home when I called to ask permission but as it was beside the door took a picture anyway. Basically it's still there and in excellent condition. I would dispute that it is on the wall of The Beeches - my recollection is that it is the next house to the north-east.

Revisit. This house is being renovated and has been gutted to a shell. Extensions are being added. The FB is on an old corner stone and looks set to survive the makeover. Builders on site, no photos taken,
