The Nags Head is no more but the building has been 'modernised' and turned into a Coffee House. In the process an outdoor terrace has been added and I suspect and hope that the FB is somewhere behind it. The Coffee House staff must have thought I was from Planet Zog when I asked about a metal plate on the wall! Nice coffee though.

Still good. Nag's Head still boarded up. Buddleia bush skeletal this time of year so FB clearly visible

Still in good condition, but the pub has been closed for a long time, and now the bracket is well hidden by a large shrub. See photos on Geograph: http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2553245 and http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2553251
