Owner said I wasn't the first to look (now I know who!) - wall built onto N face of NW angle of outbuilding NE side of yard which is where LandLine shows the BM (44.96m). Didn't find the cut BM on the house.

Helpful resident pointed out to me a (half buried) cut bench mark on the N face of the farmhouse, then fetched his tools to help me hunt for the FB on the NW corner of each building. Unfortunately FB not found - possibly obscured by pillar of garden wall.
