Jubilee Cottage, set well back from road, is approx correct GR but no sign of FB. RogerT comments: "Comparing the 1971 old map ( http://www.old-maps.co.uk/ ) with the modern map ( http://magic.defra.gov.uk/website/magic/ ) the large cottage is new, but further into the complex (going S) the old building with the FB may still exist"
