    Hi everyone,

    I'm a long time lurker here, nevertime photographer. I was doing some work in a school recently and found the basement was quite interesting if not 'cultish'. I thought some people may find it of interest. Apologies for the pics, they were all taken on my phone!

    THE HISTORY
    Farnborough Place, now St Peter’s School, is the old Manor House. It was purchased by Edward Dickinson in 1619 when he became Lord of the Manor. It was used in the past for many things including a nursing home/hotel and a youth club. Nowadays it is a junior school and apart from the architecture there isn't much to look at throughout the building except the basement. Largely untouched and now just a storage area these corridors and tunnels have decades of history.

    On the historic plans there is a tunnel behind this bricked up wall leading to the church nearby. The
    school have tried to get permission to excavate but have been turned down as the church recently
    had new floors put in.
