Peckmill Brook was something of a stinking ditch when visited. There's no obvious access to the streamside of the bridge. Viewing through binoculars from a private road off Primrose Lane revealed nothing on the parapet, unless the FB is at the extreme east end which wasn't visible. If someone does find it, details of its position and how to access it would be useful.
