Definitely a 'goner', I'm not the first to ask about it, and a previous search of the current buildings found nothing. The original farm buildings have been altered since the 1970s, and the current owners of the cottage (he was a surveyor, and knows of the OS benchmarking system) clearly recall seeing the FB in their garage when they first moved in. However, they had trouble with a water leak some years ago, and it was lost when the debris was cleared out. It presumably went west to the Granville landfill site.
