I'd say it is towards the N end of the NE face (or W end of N face). Something of a survivor, as it is inset into the rendering and below what appears to be new brick facing.

As described previously, it has a heavy coat of black paint or something of that nature, but is essentially OK. Photo at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/4914632
