viewed through hedge. A white vertical stripe exists on the FB, at time thought it was a paint splash. on looking at previous logs it is apparent that an extension was built a this location, with white strip being silcone sealant. This extension is no longer present so all FB is now visible

Not visible through the hedge, but the lady of the house was happy to show me but also apologetic about what had happened to it - previous owners blamed. Only S, arrow, M and the digits 617 are exposed. See http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1901940 for photo.
