Possible it was close to St Margarets Church, in St Margarets Street and
near St Margarets Way, looks like the whole area has been re-developed.
St Margarets Way is the A6.

Search for the OS coordinates 458770,305170 at the modern map site:
http://www.streetmap.co.uk/ and zoom in to the largest scale.
Also search those coords at:

Barwell St vanishes some time between 1930 & 1954.
