I couldn't find it either. Friendly owner let me to look at N face of barn that is now a garage. I might be hidden behind assorted milk churns, bricks and railings. He said several barns had been destroyed when the farm was converted.

Big house & farm buildings at junction immediately W of roundabout. No sign on W face of house nor W face of roadside buildings. Could be on one of the number of buildings inside the premises, or hidden on the solitary farm building S of the road
