    Visited recently with some members of the Crew and the Urbex Hound. I wont name the Crew as it tends to change on each visit, (depends which drunks the Press Gang manages to grab as they fall out of the local watering hole) but the Hound comes on every trip.

    Wapping School in Bradford.
    Built in 1877. It's a Grade II listed building and is the site of England's first-ever school swimming pool, it was closed in 2000 and sold to a development company in 2006 but has remained in planning limbo for years.

    During the latter years of the eighteen century, the headmaster had to stop assemblies regularly because of children fainting due to hunger. Paying for food for hungry children out of his own pocket, he became one of the first to pioneer free school meals.

    A major fire in June 2012 left most of the building in ruins, since then its been open to the elements, vandals, metal fairies and the stone/slate thieves .

    Yeah, interesting to see nature claiming back its ground. its worth a mooch around but be careful of the rotting floors and discarded needles.
