  11. 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)

    Pre-dual-carriagewaying of Aberford Road (A642) the central picture was Aberford Road, as it rose to bridge a railway (East & West Yorkshire Union Railway)
    It can be seen in this link, use the blue-slider to go to modern aerial photography; https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=18&lat=53.7247&lon=-1.4600&layers=168&b=1
    (old kerbstones are still visible in the undergrowth, as the pavement is now a footpath (centre photo)


    And, a 1960s(?) image of the area, looking northwards from Stanley, towards the location of jct 30
    Railway bridge, in the immediate foreground, & the forthcoming M62 being levelled out, in the mid-distance
