Didn't spot this one from the service road (former course of A49). Wasn't sure at the time which house it would be on, and decided it was too late to start calling to ask. BM 118.48m is shown on MasterMap, on SE face at S angle of No. 150 (BM 118.50m also shown at W angle of No. 150 - is this a cut BM?)
