Spoke to owner - he claimed its still there under an extension. (I have some skepticism as he thought it was well off the ground.)

Not totally clear from 2GL description where this FB ought to be - a possible location would seem to be the house called just "Wootton", at around SO 4578 7829 on the *SW* side of A49 - this house is heavily rendered, and there is no sign of FB. Probably destroyed (or not found!) long ago, as not included at 3GL. BM 103.2m is marked on MasterMap at E corner of outbuilding close to road at SO 4577 7831, but didn't find that either. However, examination of maps suggests that a building (not inspected) at SO 4564 7847 is probably a more likely location.
