In the front..

Lift the bonnet up, lift (up and out) the water bottle and it's down below where the water bottle is.

 

Hard to get at but it's there.

 

As I recall there is a retaining strap on it to stop it moving around.

John, beware the battery is tiny so it can discharge very quickly with just the security system working.  Maybe less than 10 days.

I recommend you permanently fit a battery conditioner and continually keep it topped up.  Consequently I never worry about it starting, mine always goes first time, now.  But before that I was constantly having to deal with a flat battery.  You can keep the lead permanantly connected  to the posts and then just plug in the charger after your finished driving.  I got one for about £20 out of Halfords.

I've got the Elise Manual on CD so if you bring your laptop to the meeting, you can copy it
