Revisited, this time knowing to look higher on the building than usual. Spoke to farmer's son and told him that his father would remember both first visitors in 2004 just two days apart. FB on angle further back, metal cladding over upper parts of more forward angles.

Cladding must have been removed as visible again. Had a lift up by fork-lift to get a close up photo.

Couldn't find it, and now I see why! The farmer knew nothing of it then either, but was interested in the levelling documentation I was carrying.
