    Eastmoor School - May 2013

    Evening folks, not done a report for a few months, so I thought I'd pop this one up of our recent explore of Eastmoor Secure Unit, Leeds. Quite a nice, chilled out explore this one, and a bit to see even though the place is pretty trashed! As this is quite a well known site, I've quoted the history from a previous report.
    History:

    So on with my favourite bit, the piccys!

    And well... It wouldn't be me without my trusty S10 would it! :crazy

    Cheers for reading Ladies and Gents, hope you enjoyed it!

    I was in there for a year... The people there worked very hard for the kids to have something to go out to. I had a job and a flat.
    A couple of the 'bosses' even came to my works party 6mths after I left. I gained a qualification you should be 18 normally.. I was 16.
    Lancashire & Cheshire Institute. Competent mechanic to work without supervision it meant. I wasn't even old enough to drive. Though I
    was taught by The TA on private ground. Don't believe in the 'folklore' attached to the place. I had a really rough and abusive Father & I
    had been taken in for 'car and protection'. They wouldn't even consider my going home to my Dad hence the work they put in in Leeds,
    I had an apprenticeship which would have been impossible before that place gave me a chance and a goal to aim for.

    LOL. I was in that pool as often as I could. Always quite warm though can't remember if it was heated.. There was a
    small busload of disabled kids used to come one evening each week and I was elected on of the carers... I enjoyed it
    so much and so did the kids on our last night before I left... There were tears on both sides..
    Dirty word then was 'Approved School'.. but it did for me... because they listened.

    Nice ones mate. Funny I was there the other week dodging the angry neighbours; ) Demo work going on at the side of the new unit & was in full swing so didn't bother getting in.

    I was talking to an ex employee the other week also had found dead memories of the place but the locals & the Metal Fairies hammered it big time. Another local place I'd never bothered with ?
