N face of garden wall, N side of road, 2m E of SE angle of house.. Behind pots, easy to miss. No stream - presumably culverted.

This FB does still exist, on the north side of the A40, opposite the Blue Bell Inn. It's on the N parapet of a mini-bridge, more a culvert really, streamside, between two houses. Stream was dry. Strange that G2972 is only 100yds up the road.
