A bit of a long shot, but if you check out photos of Bebington Oval, Wirral,, it does look similar. It was used in the 'Chariots of Fire' film, with temporary stands erected to make it look bigger.The trees still exist, as does that building to the left, but not the structure to the right of the stand.The Bebington Oval has got a running track in front of the stand.Hard to make out if your picture has got a running track.Good luck!

There's no athletics track so I think it must be somewhere else

Looks Dutch / German to me.

Why do we assume it's Blighty?

Just a thought.
