FB precisely where it should be, but very well hidden by a very thick and prickly bush. Owner very helpful, and got a spade so I could have a decent look at it. House dates from late 19thC.

Longdew is the house to the north of the old toll house. There was no-one at home, so I could not search for the FB. I couldn't see anything on the SE angle, but it was visited by the OS in 1962.

House to N prob too new: house to S rendered; searched both a couple of years ago IIRC.
