    Hello 28DL,

    According to this BBC article, Ysgol Coed Menai recently closed down. I stumbled upon it by accident and thought it was worth a mention on here.

    The site is extensively boarded up which has luckily deterred any obvious vandalism (so far), I think it is quite a beautiful building so I hope it stays that way. I cannot find any UE articles on it either, probably owing to it only recently becoming abandoned.

    I did not enter any of the buildings so outside shots only I'm afraid (and otherwise this thread wouldn't be in this section). Merely curious as to whether anyone else has any more info or dealings with this site?

    As you can see by this aerial photo from the 1970's it is quite an extensive site. Note: The three lower buildings are residential and are occupied.


    p.s. I believe these images conform to the new 1024 pixels limit.

    Unfortunately not, otherwise I'd have put it in the "Mansions, Manors and Country Houses" section ;) to be honest it's quite well sealed, the forum discourages talk of site entry but what I can say is the ground floor appears impenetrable...but it is a three story building after all...

    Ninja edit: I didn't go in, but had a good look from afar.

    Haha not far off! I don't speak/read Welsh but have been here a number of years so have stopped noticing these things. In rough translation: Ysgol means school, coed means wood/trees, so this "Menai Wood School" formerly "Treborth School", I think.

    The greenhouse isn't actually a greenhouse, it's a swimming pool
