Visited on 12th January 2012 by Brisey. Condition: Inaccessible.
This FB still exists but is difficult to see and would require co-operation from the resident to see properly, so I have chosen inaccessible as the best way of flagging up that it is not destroyed. It is located behind a tub in front of the SW angle of the house, where rendering has, at least in part been removed. The tub is growing a plant up a trellis so may not be moveable much. The FB is below the level of the drive so may also be partly buried. See for photo.
