Schoolhouse is intact and about to be converted into flats. SW face is clear of obstructions. Rob's suggestion that the road level has been raised above the flush bracket seems the most likely explanation. The Plough is now renamed the Lindisfarne Inn.

School House on former A1, now service road to E of present A1, immediately south of Plough Inn. No sign of FB - perhaps buried beneath road surface. Cut BM on NW corner of the Plough Inn nearby.
