Any suggestions on how to repair this please.
Nothing to technical.
Thanks.
Its at the front of my Victorian gable end.
Its a rotten section of facia on the front of my Victorian gable end. Aboutthe size of a average tv remote control.
I was going to post a photo but it says my pixels are to high.

Sounds like a simple splice would suffice , cutting out the rot plus a bit extra to get back to solid timber then fit in a new piece and paint in. An alternative , although one I've not really had much to do with , is treat , wood hardener and fill.
As you say it's quite a small section but it is on the facia of a gable end , the actual repair wouldn't take that long but it will involve erecting a tower scaffold I would have thought.

You could reduce the size of your Picture in PAINT so you could upload it!

Thanks for the photo.

Taking the righthand side of the photo first,the top part appears to have been repaired.
Noting a small amount of rot in the bead just below, this also needs cutting out and
replacing with the same section of molding. The section removed being used as a pattern for the new!

The same procedure also applies to the left hand side.
Cut out the rotten moldings to good timber and cut at 45deg (same angle as the hip rafter.
Using the molding sections removed as patterns for the replacement sections required, mark
out the mitres with a mitre square (or use a sliding bevel).
Apply a coat of wood primer to all new timber.
Pin all new sections in place, sinking pin heads to below surface of the wood.
Use exterior wood filler to pin holes and where required.
Apply undercoat/Gloss paint to areas of repair.
