SP9004 : Not Inn !

taken 12 years ago, near to Lee Clump, Buckinghamshire, Great Britain

Not Inn !
Not Inn !
The only reason I'm posting this rather boring shot is that according to the 1940s map there used to be an inn on this spot. It seems to have vanished without trace - perhaps it was a 1940s "Easter Egg". The building behind the hedge is either Gwenfa Farm (according to the map) or Gwenfa Fields (according to a local sign) - or perhaps they're both lurking there.
A bit of research (from a map of c.1890) shows that there was a pub (or presumably an inn) nearby at SP90730491 called The Red Lion. [Edit May 08] I have been informed that 100 yards to the left of this sign is "Red Lion House" which was the former pub.
