Happily still there on relatively recently repointed wall. I didn't investigate it properly last time.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition. There is also a Cut Mark just round the corner of the building.

Looks as though the building has been repointed and brickwork extensively renewed. No white FB and the wall certainly isn't white anymore.
