New residents have moved into what was, originally no3 (it's now Oak House, I think) but it does appear that the FB has been rendered over and lost to sight. The new owners were interested, but neither of us could find any sign of it.

Didnt get near to house but owner said it has been completely rendered. Intriguingly I thought I glimpsed something on the house as I was driving away.
