No sign. But FB 11448 is still present.

Did not find culvert around SK 008 272, maybe because it was really at SK 0130 2711 - will revisit perhaps, though I'm told that the FB has gone anyway, even though it was still present at the time of 3GL.

no sign of culvert or headwall, just small swamp at roadside! Assume replaced by G3875
