No vehicles on the driveway this time. The wall has been re-rendered and FB is in its own little recess in excellent condition.

Could see one side of FB at a rather oblique angle from the road. In position as described but two vehicles were on driveway partially obscuring FB. A one storey extension has been built at back of house but the mark is in correct position pre-extension.
