In good condition still just below the postbox in the wall and currently behind some rather good begonias in a pot. The fb's here are close together as this one is in a deep valley with the road gradient about 1 in 4 on either side. I bet the surveyors loved levelling these in!

can be found behind name sign below post box. Over-painted black and white but still in reasonably good condition with details still easy to read.
