The pub is now back to its original name of Wingfield Arms. The front is rendered but the pub also used to own the two cottages next door to it. As the description is "building AT Wingfield Arms" I wonder if the flush bracket is on one of these. They currently have a thick covering of ivy and other plants but I will revisit in winter if I can.
