NB: Gerrard references his site to both SX56NE/112 + 246, suggesting some uncertainty as to which of Haynes' sites it represents (Dick, A. M., undated).
NB: Grid reference and description matches that of MDV3416, so description from Gerrard has been moved to that record (Richards, A. F., 06/03/2020).
