    First report for a while as I have had 'computer issues' or rather my computer was having issues & only just got a new one so got a backlog of reports to post, will kick off with this one, visited with @vxer13 who had been before, a proper enthusiastic explorer & ace exploring buddy, cheers for showing me around this one mate :thumb was a nice little explore & thoroughly enjoyed it. Excuse the lousy photography skills but I've found it's always easier to see where you could of done better when you're sat at home looking back through your photos, and had been out of action for a couple of months.

    History,
    All I can find at the minute is that it was closed in the 90s to make way for another school, will add more history when I find it.

    Nice report! I'm glad someone has managed to get in. I failed a couple of months ago. I think I'll be trying again very soon ;)

    Cheers guys :)
    @vxer13 haha cheers mate will try to get more up tomorrow.

    @Ferox cheers man, this was with the old camera but yeah got some ok shots.

    @Lavino shit I didn't know that :( Fucking school holidays...

    @Alyxxxx good luck mate hope you get in, might be worth looking into the fire though as it isn't very big so might not still be worth it unless you like your derps extra crispy :D

    @UrbanExplorer84 cheers fella it had to be done haha

    Yeah remember the smell but don't really remember seeing many burnt bits, was there a small bit of fire damage in the main hall bit where we entered? Memory isn't very clear on it to be honest mate :confused: It certainly wasn't fire damaged enough to ruin the explore

    Yeah mate, been trying to look for fires here in the news but not found anything recent, if that's the only fire damage it's still worth a visit
