Newmarket House
(old CastleGate Lane)
Stanley (as it still is, at this location, Leeds border follows the M62 along here)
Very much a back-water, & probably a forgotten 'BM'?

This was a farm, then I remember it as a restaurant, offices
Now there's a Mews to the rear (converted, & extended out-buildings)

Junction 30/M62 is less than 300 yards away (behind me, in the central photo)
