    One from my archives, I was thinking of giving it a click bait name that's sadly all too common these days to "make it interesting" but then again I'd like to think I'm not a total twat! It would have been something like: HAUNTED URBEX FAIL CAUGHT BY SECURITY - ABANDONED SCHOOL ((FOUND SWIMMING POOL OF USED NEEDLES))

    Wapping Road School opened in 1877 and closed in 2000. It's a Grade II listed building so is obviously in quite a state. In 1887 the head saw several children keel over and faint during morning assembly. He sent out for bread, jam and tea and paid for it from his own pocket. It was also one of the first schools in Britain to have its own swimming pool.

    Sphinx Commercial Ltd said it had bought the building from Bradford Council in 2006 with a view to transforming the building into around 20 apartments. A council spokesman said Sphinx was under no obligation to keep the swimming pool despite the building’s listed status.

    The school has been set on fire, vandalised - basically had the life smashed out of it, its now used by drug users and suchlike.
