    Visited with 12318, and while I have been exploring for quite a while and been along on a number of joint explores, this was my first opportunity to get back into the photographic element.

    I guess what I'm saying is its been a while... :)

    I wont go into the history of the place since that has been well documented on here recently, save to say knowing now it was converted into flats after the school closed makes a lot more sense. Though this does beg the question how exactly the library survived intact for 25 years after the school closed and while the building was used for other purposes.

    Anyway, the camera was a borrowed (thanks 12318) Nikkon D5100 with a fixed 35mm lens (no zoom, apart the manual walking forward type). I tend to like architectural detail pics, so a lot of my stuff is close up without much context often - I basically shoot the stuff I like :). Still, good to get back in the groove. Hope you like the pics.

    I found this picture a little chilling, considering the history of the place...

    This is up there with one of my favourite explores - even though it was like a theme park when we got there. We counted no less then 5 groups including ourselves, plus we bumped into one more as we were packing up.

    Local news is its going to be redeveloped next year though, so I suppose the interest is to be expected.
