About the memorial: machorne "Finally a work should be said about the land next to the station on the north east side, for this, too, was part of the Metropolitan estate. After the Great War this thirteen acres of land was acquired by the Metropolitan Railway and leased to its athletic association on favourable terms. The grounds included a remembrance hall comprising a wooden hut on brick foundations, the hut having previously been an army hut at Summerdown Camp in Eastbourne. The hall and the cost of laying out the grounds were paid for in part by the proceeds raised by the Metropolitan’s staff for a permanent war memorial (the public memorial was, and remains, at Baker Street station). The remembrance hall was unveiled by Robert Selbie, the Metropolitan’s general manager in 1922. Unfortunately it burnt down on 4 September 1929 and was not replaced. The grounds had the usual pavilion but the association built a club house after the Second World War which became its HQ."
