    First post, this was a visit done partially with permission and partially taking others up because they were interested. We did this on our last couple of days of school as we'd never been up there

    We took lots of pictures, all were done on phones though so weren't great quality. Not all were posted here, but the whole selection is here

    Lancaster Royal Grammar School is a secondary grammar school in North West England, it was established in 1235, but moved site when this building was built. The first and second floors are still in use, and the lower levels also. The tower holds the school archives - we'd love to have seen these but it was locked up with no traceable key

    From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lancaster_Royal_Grammar_School): This building (now known as Old School House), which stands on the north side of East Road, was designed by the local architects Sharpe and Paley at a cost of £8.000 (£760,000 in 2015). The foundation stone was laid on 5 May 1851 by Rt Revd James Prince Lee, the Bishop of Manchester. The title "Royal" was granted by Queen Victoria in the same year. This building is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.

    This is not a place you could visit without being part of the school - there's no locked doors (when the building is open!) but we had knowledge of where to go and obviously are students there

    Looks quite promising, shame you could not get some better pics.
