Selby Road, Austhorpe Lodge gatehouse
Undated. View shows on the left the gatehouse to Austhorpe Lodge, which was situated on Selby Road, while the lodge itself was situated on Austhorpe Lane. The gate house is now a bungalow numbered 535 Selby Road. On the right a man is herding cattle along the unmade road which led to Austhorpe Lodge; this road is now Detroit Drive. Austhorpe Lodge is notable as being the birthplace, in 1724, of the celebrated engineer John Smeaton; it had been built in 1698 by his grandfather, also called John Smeaton, not long after the building of Austhorpe Hall (1694), a little to the north on Austhorpe Lane.
