the house currently on site has been undergoing a major build renovation for several years (10 at least). I strongly suspect all stonework is new

No sign of fb though as Rod says signs of several buildings having been demolished.

House which was presumably once the Travellers Rest PH is currently being renovated, by the looks of it. Several ruinous buildings also on site, but no sign of FB. Looks as if the building on which FB was placed has probably been demolished, though BM 323.40m on MasterMap (which, it seems, does relate to the FB) appears to be on NW face of the main building.
