Long Whatton, Falcon Inn, N face near NW angle. Nothing shown on LandLine. Note that this FB was not included in the Third Geodetic levelling of the line from Waltham to Melbourne, so was presumably already considered lost by the 1950s. However, the outline of the top of the FB appears to be just visible under the rendering - if so, the rest of the FB would be below footway level.
