Number difficult to read because of increasing layers of paint. The house is called Moat House Farm in Offton CP.

Moat House Farm, SE face, E angle. Thickish whiteish paint, looks rather like 2106 (but less so than 2106 does!)

Can be seen from road.Looks as though the FB has received a couple of coats of cream coloured sandtex recently.
