The building in the above photo seems to have gone, but the building I remember as the 'Druids building' is still there..

Just talking to an old Pal of mine who lived most of his life in Holbeck and the Blue Ball was his Local for many years. He agreed about the Fairground people storing their Gear at the back in winter but added that they owned the area around the Pub and parked their living accommodation ( Caravans ) in front of the premises. The Druids building was slightly higher up Balm Walk.
