In location as described but the building is no longer a mill but office suites. The bracket is just to the right of what appears to be a large meter cover and virtually at ground level.

Still there, nearly hidden by what looks like a gas meter enclosure with a steel mesh front. Does not look much like a mill wall now, looks like offices.
