Factory-type building N side of road, only S face visible with no sign of FB. Set back between houses - old terrace to W is rendered, house to E is too new.

Long Whatton, The Green, NE side of road. Modern housing has evidently replaced the factory buiding on which the FB would have been. Another building, a little way to the SE, set back from the road between a row of terraced houses and a more modern house, was evidently also a lace factory, but probably not the location of the FB.
