I've logged it as 'Prob des' but didnt notice anything under rendering (but must admit no close look done).

Flaxford, SW side of A49 (well below present road level, almost opposite milestone "Ludlow Cross VI"). Couldn't see FB from the road, and did not inspect house closely, but looking at my photograph, I think that the FB may still be there, under the rendering, at NE angle of house. BM 107.68m is shown on MasterMap.
