Manor Farmhouse is a Grade II listed building dating from 17-18thC. The FB has not just been painted over, there is a hard resin-type material beneath the paint. Whilst the paint came off easily enough I could barely scratch the resinous material - a small cold chisel and hammer is required! Having said that, the number can be made out with some degree of certainty as S/074 (with 'S' below the numbers). Photos at:
