Still there, and preserved when the extension was built. The owner even had the extension built 6" smaller than it might have been in order to keep the FB where it was; how's that for wisdom? Photo at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3736190

Appears to be lost to an extension. No one in to ask.

Yes, guessed it's on the part hidden from the road. There's an extension in the way on the building pointed to by GPS (hopefully hasn't covered the FB). Wrong time of day to ask.

On the farmhouse and facing N (NE corner); necessary to enter grounds from the S (was a plant nursery and new owners only been in a few weeks)
