To elaborate on the main description:

There are no buildings directly at the roadside at the location in question (verified by looking at old OS maps), or even anywhere near. The road couldn't have changed its path enough to account for this, as the extremely close rivet on the bridge is still there:

...and the OS table says that both the rivet and this FB were last verified in the same year (1960).

Photos of where the mark would be (the sign saying "Dairy Farmhouse" indicates a cottage along a very lengthy driveway):

Taken closely towards where the mark would have been: http://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p484/aghadleigh/aghadleigh020/df1.jpg
Taken facing the opposite way, towards the rivet (visible bridge parapet in this photo is *opposite* to the one with the rivet): http://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p484/aghadleigh/aghadleigh020/df2.jpg
Taken from the side of the road facing where the building would be today: http://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p484/aghadleigh/aghadleigh020/df3.jpg

The hedge does not conceal any buildings.
