Low down at centre of bridge parapet. Looks like the remains of at least one earlier cut mark behind the FB. The datum marks are quite clear above the bracket. http://maps.jochta.com/benchmarks.php?id=875

Walk across the bridge (resisting the view of the castle from the opposite side), and it is an easy spot about halfway across.
