Holly Lodge Farm (also previously known as Shaw's Farm), now demolished, on S face, NE side of road. Owner of replacement house built 50m to SE showed me where the FB (and also a cut BM) used to be - now in the middle of a lawn. Location (SK 6355 2148) also confirmed from large scale maps. Owner said that he had salvaged the FB when the old farmhouse was demolished, but it had since been stolen.

Visited on 20th November 2004 by RHW. Condition: Probably destroyed.
3 houses E side of road, middle one is oldish, some alterations, owner happy for me to search, no sign of FB on S face
