Sorry I have made a navigational error! The building is to the East of the river Darent 😮
Left is where your thumb is on the right, right is where your thumb is on the left!!

Time for some clues.
Mrs Stewie and myself went for a walk earlier this year and using our Ringo app to pay for our car parking, followed the course of a river passing a temporarily closed train station serving a recreational area which has been a popular attraction with families for many years. The building itself is not visible on street view, but took our attention and Mrs Stewie photographed it suggesting it could be used on GTP. 
Unfortunately , we do not know a lot about the building and was rather hoping someone else would!


The mystery building is located between a small boatyard and a small industrial estate.

Sounds like a good idea but I'm not sure where to get the grid references from.  Can you guide please.  I only use GSV.
Cheers
John


If you use google maps just click on the location or right click at the location and the reference appears

Many Thanks Lutonman, one of my rare appearances as the Guess the Place host, I recognised the entrance arch to the fields which took some of the former 'Fort Luton' secondary school playing field area. You must have quite a lens on your camera!


Have a go at this one.

I believe that you can get them from Google Earth if you have it, (if not it is well worth getting for the 'historical imagery' facility).

Just a suggestion; if possible it would be lovely to see either a grid reference or a lat/log (eg from GPS) with the solution.  For Lutonman's last I think the camera must have been at 51.3740223,0.5442385 with Luton Millenium Green centered at 51.37019,0.53780  It's nice to be able to quickly find some of these locations and to consider going there when we are allowed to.  Please don't stress over this, it is merely a suggestion, not a request or a pestering.
