One of the more famous landmarks on the M62 motorway in Yorkshire, England, although most people don't know its name. Stott Hall Farm lies between junctions 22 and 23, near Booth Wood Reservoir.

The farm was present long before the motorway was built, and the owner was vehemently opposed to losing his farm, and home. He protested on the roof, and in order to keep the peace, the route of the west-bound carriageway was diverted southwards slightly.

The farm now nestles in a small hollow with 3 lanes of heavy traffic on each side, and a tunnel under each carriageway for access.
