In the described location. I asked at the house if I could do a search and was told I was not the first to ask and I was taken to it. From our point of view it is a shame that it is now partly hidden behind some new metal supports that have had to be put up to support the barn doors. The good news is that it is now well protected and will probably last as long as the barn does.
