Wharf cottage now lost to housing estate. Would have expected FB in centre of the short battlement. Cleared the ivy but couldn't find any sign of FB. Metal detector drew a blank too. Not on OS database.

Didn't find Wharf Cottage, but bridge looks right. Ivy-covered, searched underneath, no FB found.
