Wetherby Road at the junctions with Thorner Lane and Syke Lane (Scarcroft)
Black & White image1948. Bird's eye view of Wetherby Road (seen diagonally across centre) at the junctions with Thorner Lane, (off to the left) and Syke Lane (off to the bottom right hand corner. Marlborough House is visible on the corner of Wetherby Road with Thorner Lane. It was built alongside two older cottages and is believed to pre-date the Manor House which can be seen at the left edge on the opposite side of Thorner Lane. It is thought to have been built before 1840. In the 1940s the Pearson family ran a dairy farm here. In 1948 Marlborough House and its land, which included an orchard, was purchased by Frank and Emily Simmonds of Burley in Leeds. Frank had built up a butcher's business from a shop at 282 Kirkstall Road. He had always liked this area north-east of Leeds and so settled here with his wife and three children. He bred pigs and poultry to supply the retail outlet and two of his children were to carry on the farming side of the business. The Manor House at the left edge is located next to the Tollhouse. It is believed to date from the early 19th century. At the right edge the Malthouse public house is visible. Image courtesy of Andrew Simmonds.
