The plaque is not visible in our photo of the house; it's barely visible from the street. On the side of the house, it can be seen by peering over the top of the wall to the very right of our photo.
2017: We were contacted by Chris Kitching who is writing a book about Walter Rye, the athlete and antiquary, who lived at Frognal House 1891-9. His book (due end of this year or beginning of next) has a short section about the house.
