Interesting stuff although ours isn't a genuine Leitch stand per se.

Since my biography of Leitch was published, the confirmed list of his clients has continued to grow. It now appears that he worked at Chesterfield’s Saltergate, and, as many had suspected, that after his death his company also designed the Mayflower Stand at Plymouth’s Home Park in the early 1950s. More on this – the Leitch company’s last commission before it was wound up in about 1956 – can be read in Russell Moore’s new history Home Park, a Pictorial History.

It lists every Leitch stand with photographs. No mention of HP.
We had a Leitch-style stand, we did not have a Leitch stand. In a few months time we will have neither, which is progress.
Like a lot of others I wish we could have afforded a stand that completed the horseshoe and completely removed the Leitch-style stand.
