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

That's a great survivor! Typical De-con building. I must try and take a look sometime - thanks for posting! :)

This single story building was built on council playing fields in 1940. Part of Gravesend's A.R.P. precautions. It has entrances to undressing rooms, showers, changing rooms and a boiler room. It is still in use as sports changing rooms.
The Fields Lie Sleeping Underneath.
