The building bears the name 'The Farm'. The bracket is mounted on the wall abutting the house. Photo showing the mark at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/4770866 with wider view at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/4771257

At the described location - well I think it is. It was much higher up the wall than I was expecting so suspect like RHW that it might well have been relocated sometime in the past. Whatever, it is there and in good condition.

Skipton- Farm Croft. N face of wall at Farm Croft entrance, E side of main road. Set c 1m high, location seems not as I expected from 2GL (hence failed to find previously) - suspect redeveloped & refixed
