    Crookham Court School

    This one had been on my "to do" list for a while, I checked it out a couple of times & the place was sealed, but after seeing some reports I thought I'd give it another go.

    Visited with Landie_Man, this place has a rather sketchy past. Built in 1850 as a manor house; it's had all sorts of uses but its will always be remembered as the infamous Crookham Court school. The owner and two other teachers went down for child abuse in the 1980s, with a further employee prosecuted last year. The site was owned by one of the abuser's family and was converted into bedsits up until recently where it was purchased for £2M by developers. The fate of this place is unclear, it's been proposed to be turned into a large family home, but seperate applications have been made for flats. Personally I dont think any development will out shadow its past. It's quite a sobering experience exploring somewhere that so many lives were ruined. From what I've read, abuse went on at the school for over thirty years.

    Anyway, time for some photos
