I am trying to follow the advice here http://openforum.sophos.com/t5/Mac-tools-help/Know
I eventually found a Quarantine db file - is this what is meant?
Finder Search (visible or invisible) files could not find it and it took a bit of time tracking this file down.
If there is a Quarantine Folder - where do I find it please?

what issue did you encounter that makes you think you have to follow that advice? Note that it applies to an immediate scan - e.g. a Finder scan (Ctrl-Click -> Scan with Sophos Anti-Virus). Can't say if this is still an issue with the newer versions.
Anyway you'll see the folder location (default /Users/Shared/Infected/) when you select Move threat for When a threat is found.

Just for further clarification: by default, there is no Sophos Quarantine folder. Files are locked for access, but not moved by default. That advice you mentioned is for a specific edge case, and unless you are experiencing the problem, you should not need to worry about it.
