Site: Holborn Viaduct - Myddelton (1 memorial)

EC4, Holborn Viaduct

A London Inheritance have a photo showing the remains of this pavilion after WW2 bombing. That page has a thorough history of the Viaduct with lots of photos. For this corner they say: "On the north east corner of Holborn Bridge, Bath House was built on the site in the 1970s and in 2014, following demolition of Bath House and as part of the redevelopment which included a new Bath House, the final missing pavilion building was constructed. Whilst in the style of the original pavilions, the clean stonework gives away that this is a building only three years of age."

Holborn Viaduct is watched over by four memorial statues:
north-west corner - Walworth 
south-west corner - Fitz Eylwin 
south-east corner - Gresham
north-east corner - Myddelton.

The Walworth page contains information about Holborn Viaduct itself.
