Necessary to access garden so courtesy ring by doorbell first. As already mentioned, the building looks much newer than the 1940s FB. Has the FB been refixed after being rescued from downtakings from a previous building, or is this a very good restoration of the old stone shell? FB was painted black some time ago.
