    Me and a friend visited have visited this place 3 times. This is the last time we explored. Each time we have visited, more buildings have been demolished. I'm not a pro photographer as you can tell by the pictures. There is still a lot remaining, we couldn't get access to the Theatre as there were contruction workers nearby (we saw it the first time we went) but you can see pics of it on antoher report. The gymnasium is huge and in great condition, could even play football there (watch out for the random holes). After 3 visits we have seen the place slowly deteriorate (because construction). There is little vandalism considering.

    Background:
    It was an RAF base, then a school for americans who who parents in the military. Here's some wiki links:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAF_Daws_Hill
    and then:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_Central_Elementary_High_School

    You can differentiate the RAF/Army buildings from the School buildings easily.

    Notes:
    *Did not notice the dead fox until I uploaded
    *The exit route on the last 2 pics
    *Note the Smashed up server room
    *Old intercom and elevator
    *1 pic shows how close we were to a construction vehicle and another of my friend running to not be seen
    *The bathroom pics were surprisingly in really good condition. Fresh.
    *Notice the electronics and the constructors spray paint.
    *Note the tree FULL with peoples shoes

    Fun exploration, would recommend before anything else gets destroyed but it is a huge place so that will take a while.

    Thanks for looking!

    The pics of the bunker with the ladder look like its an entrance but it was sealed shut and I we would have needed a power tool to open that, not just a crowbar or etc.
