I think I may have logged this as probably destroyed when I transcribed the 2GL line. A BM is shown clearly on the N face on the NE angle of the cottage on old maps at exactly the right height and the GR would be about SP 70174 01523. The N entrance to Cop Court was S of here just around the corner, a footpath leads SSW from there.

It could easily be a survivor.

Attington Leys is old cottage. If here, FB would be round the back. Cars parked, but no reply. A track leads E from just S fo cottage, could have been an entrance to Cop Court? Bungalow to N is too new. [Why flagged PD?]

No sign of Cop Court, although there's a house there. NE angle is furthest from road, perhaps behind shed?
