On side of private cottage which has had an extension built very close to where the mark may be. Also, something covered by a tarpaulin was against the wall where the mark may exist. If it exists as described it could possibly be seen from the road about seven metres away if the roadside hedge is not in leaf. Also, village is called Umberleigh.
