    Visited with nij.

    We came to this site a little while ago and started off with the outbuildings, but ran out of time for the main one. When we went back today, some of the classrooms had been fenced off and signs of a construction site by Leeds Council had popped up with people on. So we were quite lucky.

    Eastmoor school in Adel, Leeds, first opened in 1857 as the Leeds Reformatory for Boys, later becoming Eastmoor Approved School.

    In the 19th century, a child under 14 could be sent to a place like Eastmoor for begging, wandering, consorting with thieves and prostitution. In more modern times it became the Eastmoor approved school and housed more dangerous criminals.

    One of Jamie Bulger's killers, Jon Venables, apparently spent time there in the 1990s. As time went on, the site grew, and became a self-contained village, Some of the buildings are still littered with clothes and toys.

    After Eastmoor closed as a community home, it was used as accommodation for Leeds University students, who left when a new campus opened in Headingley in 2003.

    The site is owned by Leeds City Council, who intend to sell the site to make way for a new housing development - although it is thought the chapel, later used as a gym, will remain.

    The other buildings include staff housing and a laundry, as well as residential and education blocks, one of which was used to film a fire scene for ITV1 hospital drama The Royal.

    Magic set of pics and thank you very much. You have managed to get a beauty of the garage/workshop where I did most of my training.
    I'll treasure that one.
