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.
