Back home in 2020 

By 2020 it had been back in its original location for many years. For some reason, it sports a non-standard white top and looks a bit sad for itself. Also the Makers Plate has been very thickly over-painted in white without picking out the name and date in black, and a new building has recently appeared in the field behind it
