Original GR from 2GL transcription incorrect (now corrected), as New Buildings located by road sign. Building has extension on NW corner, so presume FB lost.

Visited on 4th August 2005 by iainmac. Condition: Couldn't find it.
Three possibilities - one looked too modern, one is rendered and the other has an extension.
