Burway Toll Cottage, NW face, close to N angle - top half of FB rendered over, but bottom half of FB (including number) remains visible.

Visited on 13th May 2006 by RodS. Condition: Couldn't find it.
Did not spot the FB, but could easily have missed it - had just got soaked through in a cloudburst! BM not shown on MasterMap

Visited on 27th August 2005 by ted. Condition: Slightly damaged.
The OS description slightly misleading in that 'Knighton Road' is now Bromfield
Road whilst the end of Burway lane was truncated by the construction of
Coronation Avenue in the 1930s. But the FB is still there, on the NE face of Burway Toll cottage, close to ground level.
