In the described location. I asked at the house and was taken through the living room and kitchen to be shown where it was - behind bins and old window frames. I was allowed to move these to see what I was after. The bracket is in good condition and highly protected. I had a nice chat with the lady of the house and she would welcome all comers should they wish to see this bit of history.
