Called at Ironstone Farm to ask. Present owner has lived there about 20 years and had not seen the FB. Bungalow was apparently built around 30 years ago, and replaced the house which previously occupied the site.

Location (SK 7387 2436) confirmed from large scale maps. Modern bungalow on site has presumably replaced earlier house.
