    Myself and a non member recently paid a visit to the former Llantarnam Comprehensive school in Cwmbran, South Wales. The school has recently closed and is awaiting demolition to make way for a primary school and new housing developments on the land.

    Walking through the corridors was what I can only describe as ghostly, I'm sure I've visited graveyards that have made more noise.

    It was a sort of impromptu visit, therefore, the pictures aren't the best of quality but I hope to go back soon and capture better quality images and cover more areas of the school before the demolition takes place.

    Hope you all like these pictures :-)

    You're welcome! It was certainly a visit that was worth it. Demolition will begin soon to make way for houses so unfortunately, time is running short for further visits.

    School was out 2 weeks before these images were taken. Final visits for public was the week before some of these images were taken, there's a mixture of public tour images and school completely closed images which I'm sure you can work out which are which by the state of classrooms, etc.

    Here's an official school link.

    Doesn't look too bad this, been waiting for this to close for a while now. Hoping to pay a visit within the next few days!
