Searched the pillars of the Market and walls of the Guildhall without seeing a FB. The provided GR suggests the FB may be on the Toll House rather than the Guildhall.

Visited on 12th September 2007 by RHW. Condition: Couldn't find it.
Made a fairly good search in the 10 mins available: 2 buildings with pillars in approx correct location, none bearing a FB. Aforementioned ARH log says "North side of street"

Funny one. The page currently shows a green square - indicating good, but there are neither logs nor photos. I was in central High Wycombe, and so looked for it. I could not find it on the building I believe it should be on. The bricks in the most likely location had been repaired - so I suspect it has gone. As always I would be delighted to be proved wrong - it is always possible I missed it.
