As before. Some new vegetation growing up, but not enough - yet - to hide the FB. http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/5290339

Wymeswold, 93 Brook St, centre of S face. Revisit to move the spruce branches aside to reveal the FB! Interesting datestone on building - "Wimeswold Gas Light & Coke Co, 1881". Note that "The Elms" of the 2GL description of the location is now (presumably) the Windmill Inn

So that's where it's hiding, behind that spruce tree (which is now a bit bigger!) I did try to peer behind the tree, but didn't reach out to move it aside. I should have read the previous log before searching. Now on the revisit list!
