Westmead Poultry Farm, Newbury

Had a look at a 1939 directory.

Sir M Stapleton is at Westmead, Newtown Road
J Jackson is at Westmead Poultry Farm, Monks Lane

I'm pretty sure Stapleton's house will be the one that was developed into Westmead Drive.

Earliest entry I can find for J Jackson at Westmead Poultry Farm is 1933 - he may have been there earlier, the directories do not always have 100% coverage.   He is still there in 1942 but seems to have gone by 1950 (the next directory I have).

At a guess I'd say the poultry farm was the one ringed (1932 map, 1933 directory insert):
