    History.....
    The school occupies what used to be the Lillesden Estate Mansion, built at the estate (south of Hawkhurst) in 1855 by the banker Edward Loyd, who moved there after marrying. The house and estate remained in the family until just after the First World War, when it was then sold and eventually became the Bedgebury Girls Public School.

    The school closed around 1988 and has been abandonned for decades. Due to the theft of its lead roof, water damage is now sadly causing the buildings to collapse. However, it is now owned by a property developed and expected to be converted into private apartments at some point in the future.

    Visited with the wife (twisted) and a mate, we first found out about this place a couple of years ago when Jackal came across it by mistake, we had done a small explore back then but the place was a lot more secure with cameras and pir's we ended up making a hasty get away.

    Roll foward a few years and we happen to pass it today, couldnt belive it was still empty so we parked up and headed in and had a quick look round, decided it was worth a few pictures so a 100mph drive home pick up the camera and my first explore for fooking ages done:D
