Busy fruit farm. FB located at left end of front elevation of house. However, 30 year years earlier, the main entrance was transferred to the back, and what was the front garden is now only accessible via the house. Owner kindly took time out to show me through house to flush bracket for photography. They were also interested to learn more about the purpose and history of the flush bracket. In good condition.
Large range of fruit and local farm produce grown and supplied here:
