Yes, it is in the garage. Friendly young man who had lived there all his life and never noticed the fb, answered the door and let me in. Mercifully the fb was clear of junk!

Verulam Terrace still there, but I couldn't locate the plate. The end terrace house has had a modern side extension which if the plate was there would have covered it.
