Warehouse Wednesday: Burton-on-Trent tennis club

Killing time waiting to visit the DEMU show in Burton a few months ago, I happened upon this interesting building tucked away down a side street.

Now home to a tennis club, it's presumably been some sort of workshop, stables or even farm building in a previous life. The proximity to the town hall makes me think a pub stables is most likely, although there is no sign of a pub.

The building is now surrounded by houses and overlaps their gardens as you can see above.

Quite an interesting modelling prospect, although you'd have to work at the brick painting if replicating the prototype faithfully as there have obviously been an awful lot of repairs and renovations over the years!
