380 Mansfield Road. Visited the correct building this time! Got permission from the occupiers to have a look, and showed them a picture of a Flush Bracket as an example of what I was looking for. They had no idea that it was there! FB just behind the blue gate - in fact, right next to the gatepost, and in good conditon, having been spared the rendering that covers the rest of the wall.
