Possible or for scouts or maybe a old council type building I am going to guess though some sort of old phone line building :thumb

Rendered brick construction with a concrete roof so likley to be C20th
Very large boarded aperture would suggest machinery had to be moved in or out at some time - transormers or standby set possibly.
Large boarded openings at the top of the main block likely to be louvred vents rather than windows if electrical equipment was in there.
Office-like annex could suggest sub-station as larger ones had a phone room (CEGB having their own phone network) / instrument room.

Photos aren't sufficient to be more positive as they show pretty much nothing.

Looking at the old maps website might give you some clues?
