No 50 is depicted on the modern mapping. Note that the adjacent property (No. 54, but not labled with a number on MasterMap) is included in the record as this is now part of the same property. MasterMap incorrectly labels the next house along as No. 54, but StreetView confirms that this should be No. 56 North Street.
