News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

A rule placed along Fair Row on the 1907 map puts the structure near to a N-S footpath right across the middle of the lines. It is BIG and if permanment must surely have left some traces of foundations, etc. So could it be temporary, such as a circus tent?

I would hazard a guess that it is a pavilion on the recreation grounds.

This is a picture of Fair Row looking towards the Brook. I was intrigued by the structure visible on the horizon. I can't seem to find anything on a map that seems to correspond and wondered if anyone might be able to identify it. I think the picture must have been taken sometime after the first war.
