Found easy enough by accessing Victoria Park from main entrance and letting GPS take me to it. It looks a little tired and the height tag is missing otherwise good. Photos at:

Bit tricky to find. Easiest way is probably via the fenced off rock garden, which can only be accessed from the south. From the highest point of the path round this, up into the undergrowth, and it's just a few yards along to the right.
