    After a long wait here's the first feature of the new year! This was a 2 trip explore but luckily i live close so wasn't any hassle!
    The original building was small and on site in 1786 then got replaced by a bigger building in 1861, it was then re purchased by the Lord Mayor of Belfast in 1903 where a number of extensions where added. It was later sold to Campbell College in 1924 becoming a sister prep school in 1929.
    However the history of the school isn't all good... There was a very serious investigation into the school over a huge child sex abuse and rape that was then covered up by the headmaster at the time. This lead to the closure of the school in 2004. It has then fallen into a bad state and been a victim to vandalism making some areas open to the elements.

    If you know the location i strongly advise against visiting the location unless taking the proper precautions to get permission. We got into quite a bit of bother there after a group of kids caused damage when we where there that lead to us being wrongly accused at the start but after sorting it out we where let on our way.

    The original building is heavily boarded up and ins't accessible, it is a grade 2 listed building as well for anyone interested!

    I had to cut more that half of the photos out so check my Facebook page for them all!
