As Rob W says, if it still exists it ought to be visible. The owner might have a story to tell (preserved?) so I called but there was no reply.

Back for anotherlokk. LandLine shows 2 BMs on W face of No 3: NW angle and SW angle. Former has perhaps been partly rebuilt when gate installed; latter looks original but brickwork cracked and flaky. Neither BM spotted: no FB. Guess it's gone, if mapped position is/was correct.

Visited on 27th February 2007 by RHW. Grid reference: SK 9773 6838. Condition: Couldn't find it.
Not visible from road: no sign of FB on SW angle. May be on NW angle hidden by post of gateway into back garden, although there's very little room if it's on W face. W face of building appears original.
