In good shape on Ferryman's House of the Beetle and Wedge complex. There is now a private drive to the left of the House bearing the FB - compare with the photograph taken by John Talbot which shows buildings to the left. From the pattern of the brickwork around the FB it looks as if the FB has not been relocated.

As others have said, it is not on the South Stoke side of the river. Straightforward to view.
