This School is one which I have known about for years and even new people who went there as pupils at the time it was open. I also know the old gardener and groundsman from my childhood as we used to go poaching and drinking together, I haven’t seen him for many years however some of the stories he used to tell us about what the kids at the school got up to is quite shocking. I heard stories of gang bangs in the woods and stories of staff turning a blind eye to various sexual activities and assaults that seemed common place at this particular school.
I don’t want to say too much about this place as its still a work in progress and I have only managed to access about a quarter of it, if that! The bits not seen in this report are the best bits of the school unfortunately, I hope to follow this up soon with pictures of the rest of the school and buildings around it. There is a security centre there with very regular patrols and I was nearly caught a couple of times and have been caught in the past. I am exploring this one in bits due to the nature of the security and access, so expect another report soon on the remaining bits of this location.
On the day I got into this particular area of the school I had no camera with me and turns out my phone was on some god forsaken “live” setting, which I was unaware of being new to Apple products. So apologies for some of the pictures, they will be replaced when I get back there with the proper camera!
I have been back here over ten times probably since i did this this report and have manage to gain access to the swimming pool, gymnasium, squash courts and finally the main old listed building. Unfortunately it was empty and a little boring inside and bare. However the heating was on and all power etc… I was caught out by internal automatic lights in the corridors and had to run when the place got light up like a Christmas tree right opposite the security hut. I know its being turned into a retirement village and I’d say if you want to see it abandoned still you need to get there pretty sharpish people! Much of it has already been knocked down.
