Apparently not on house, MasterMap apparently has BM on small building just to W, but no FB found, could be buried, but suspect that doesn't refer to the FB, which has probably gone.

Pasture Lodge, N (roadside) wall has been rebuilt, or at least refaced, probably when the adjacent road level was raised. BM 64.81m on LandLine is presumably not the FB, and may be on the outbuilding to W of Pasture Lodge, but nothing found.
