This depot was used to check crates of corned beef during and after World War Two. It was situated just off the road between Ouzelwell Green and the old crossroads that were at the top of Newmarket Hill. With good railway access from the main track at Lofthouse, the depot was out of the way of German Bombers heading for Leeds, or the airfields of Sherburn, Church Fenton, Thirsk, and Topcliffe ect. The crates of corned beef were loaded onto a conveyer that took them into the sheds where they were checked. In decent weather the workers from Stanley used to walk or get off the No 92 bus up the hill, after the Ship pub in Lee Moor, the bus stop near the sharp left hand bend in the road. Then they would cross over the road and go along Fenton Lane , across the fields to the back of the works.
