The bridge is in what is now the middle of a field; the footpath goes over it, although it must be noted that the ground level is now so high it almost touches the top of the roof! One could go underneath the bridge but only by crawling commando-like.

Hence I suspect if the bracket is still there then it is well-buried. See http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2523703 for a visual reference.
