Lady of house knew nothing of FB, been there 20 years. I suspect it is/was on old gabled stone building which has had other structures built on but FB could well be still there. RogerT comments: "This FB is on the OS Database and position shown accurately on the 1971 map on an L-shaped building. I think this is still there by looking at modern map and Bing aerial view." If visiting, it would be worth taking a print of the old map, as the owners or at least the lady of the house knows nothing about it and it's not obvious where to look.
