It is demolished.

By all accounts it was in Bramley Fall Woods, off Pollard Lane just across the canal on the Bramley side. looking at :-

There is a clearing in the woods with a lot of parked vehicles, maybe somewhere in / around there.

If you're on about the rather large clearing behind the pub...... that's what used to be the Aire Valley Dyeworks run by Whitaker & Aykroyd, it's now houses.

Also, if you check on old-mapsdotcom you may be able to find it easier, If there was a manor house in the area it may have been one of the only houses....

Here's where it was.

Here's a link to Live Search Maps - the remains of Newlay Hall are the brown clearing to the east of the white rectangular clearing.

Looking at the map it appears Newlay Hall is where the old quarry is now at Bramley Fall Woods.
I do remember a family that used to live in a house that was on the edge of the quarry that has long since gone, i think there may be some trace of it though. ( that was in the 60's)

According to other threads on SL, stone from that quarry was used in every famous building in the country! Erm,...except York Minster!

The gable end still stands of Newlay hall, if you can fight your way through the undegrowth to get to it that is. It's spot on were Tasa'a map shows it. You can see the old gate posts on the boundry wall still.
