Toll House (1)
Wakefield Road (A61)
At junction with; Lee Lane, Shaw Lane
Staincross
Barnsley

Oddly no pictures on Geograph :eek:
However, it's to the left of the blue circle; https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/823426

1. I've always understood it to be a toll-house, for the very busy Wakefield & Barnsley road
Plus, the petrol station just to the north (other side of crossroads) is the TurnPike Garage

As I was walking along the verge looking for this, a lady came pedalling past south-bound, & asked what I was photographing
(in a 'Birdwell Wheelers' jacket!!)
She told me it was further along than I was looking

She stopped by it, & we started talking
Rather coincidentally, she was the Yorkshire 'rep' for the Milestone Society:okay:
A rather enjoyable few minutes were passed!!!
