Almost certainly destroyed. Dug down to the foundation level of the only wall it could possibly be on, to no avail. The building which used to have the mark on its south face has been long demolished, but initially it seems that they left the south wall; upon closer inspection, a newer wall seems to have been erected in its place. We dug knowing exactly where it should be (and a little further...), via old OS 1:2500 maps. Rookery Farm is in Acton CP.

Visited on 20th January 2008 by RHW. Grid reference: TL 8959 4702. Condition: Couldn't find it.
Unable to find on long line of roadside buildings (some dense ivy); not on 1st building back.
