Just had to look as I was walking past. Same conclusion as others - it has been built over.

SE angle has been altered, maybe on E face (concrete facing - lumpy but no trace of FB) or covered by extension to S face

Visited on 21st August 2004 by RodS. Condition: Probably destroyed.
If on E face, either rendered over or else buried below footway; if on S face, may be hidden inside extension. Not found marked on any maps.
