There is a narrow strip of chippings between the tarmac path and the wall so I had a dig at the north-west angle of the building. I didn't get far down before encountering footpath substrate and no hint of the top edge of a flush bracket. Looking at the OS database, I see it was 0.3m below ground when last verified in 1968, probably even deeper now. This one seems irretrievably buried so I'm going to call it destroyed.

Roadside buldings look right, but no trace of FB. Buried by raised footway maybe?
