The Polytechnic Stadium in London was built in 1938 on the Quintin Hogg memorial grounds in Chiswick, London. It suffered bomb damage in 1944 but was brought back into use. As a child, this is where we used to come for school sports days. The grandstand is a grade 2 protected structure but is currently cordened off and unused due to safety concerns. Plans are in place to renovate the stadium and bring it back into use.
