It's terrifying how time flies, isn't it? I went to two exhibitions at Leeming Bar, one in 2005 when the draft orders were still being developed and one in 2006 when they were published. It's coming up to eight years since the first one.

I assume one of those is the square turret thing you can see from the road? Looks like everything sufficiently close to the east side of the A1 north of the Catterick bypass is for the chop, maybe half a dozen properties? Not many compared with the large number demolished for Dishforth - Leeming.
I imagine there are several places along here where one-time buildings were demolished either for past A1 upgrades that happened, or for ones that were planned but didn't happen at the time.
South of Catterick some houses around Holtby Grange lose access to the north, south and west. The current proposals have no bridge there. They'll only be accessible via Low Street.
The map shows Osborne Cottages losing all their road access, but a check with Streetview shows they are derelict anyway.
