johnfilmer has it.  Herne Bay Pier Pavilion it is.


The one the photo relates to the one burned down in 1970.  Roller Skating and Wrestling in the 50s and 60s was very popular.  There was also a narrow gauge railway along the pier to take passengers to the paddler steamers.


I understand there has been three pavilions over the years.  It's an open space now with pop-up retail huts.


Over to you johnfilmer

I can see your thinking CAT as the clues do fit - but it's not there.

Clue: 1970 is significant.

Is it the remains of the former repair 'shed' of the Canterbury Motor Company on Rhodaus Town, Canterbury. This was formerly an agricultural hall before being part converted into a car production company (c.1903) and a roller skating rink (Canterbury Olympia Roller-Skating Rink) in its later years before becoming a car repair workshop again until its closure and demolition for student accomodation?

Not there Stewie.  Further east and much smaller wheels.  Used to operate in sets of eight within this building.
