    Well this place is meant to be really unstable..... and it was, window frames move in the brickwork, the building moves with the wind, and bits fall off. You really have to watch your step, and DO NOT TOUCH THE WALLS! They just crumble.
    But dispite the signs and fences.. onwards. Having lived near by all my life, ive seen the place many times from the outside, but never ventured in. So i begin my search in what was the playground.

    The striking feature being the old clock which is still mounted up there but not working.

    All the Windows boarded up and very loose and unstable. Behind the tree on the right is another big window, but this one isnt boarded. I happened to just nudge it, and the whole lot moved, so i didnt do that again!
    Above the window is the old School Bell, and the Established date 1888. Amazing shes still standing.

    At this point i did consider going though the window to get in but seeing how much they move etc, wasnt worth it, litterally, i could see the whole side and roof collapsing if i did, its that unstable there!
    So i go in search of a safer entrance.
    Round the corner is like a scene from the secret garden, a white door masked by ivy, but its wedged from the other side with lumps of timbre, and the window is no good.

    So thinking my luck is up, a few pics from the outside looking in.

    Then i notice the alley going downt he other side of the building, and i was supprised how clear it was, real easy access.

    The founders of the school

    Then round the corner to what used to be roofed, and the big main door to the school, no longer there.
    IMG_5511.jpg
    More Initals
    IMG_5513.jpg
    IMG_5515.jpg
    Then just in on the left is what was the old cloakroom, with peg hooks and name tags still visable, being from the village i even know of some of the peoples named, as my dad was once a pupil there.
    IMG_5518.jpg
    Where the old sink used to be, plumbings still visible

    IMG_5521.jpg

    IMG_5540.jpg
    Opposite the cloakroom, is the first of the main halls, to which there are two in the building, this being the smaller one. This is the one with the clock on from the outside. Much of the inside is old items, and original stuff, but then there are odd things like, T-Cut, Castrol Oil can etc, which obveously arent.
    IMG_5542.jpg
    IMG_5544.jpg
    A really nice old lamp is still left on the mantle to the fireplace, along with other items, including an old blow tourch, more modern me think though.
    IMG_5545.jpg
    IMG_5547.jpg
    The reading text of the times "Budding - By Evan Hunter"
    IMG_5550.jpg
    The floor was really shady, moved a lot, and had already fallen through in places so i didnt venture too far, theres a big door on the floor i stayed on that. But across the room, there was a small cabinate/shelf, and clipboard on the wall.
    IMG_5553.jpg
    IMG_5554.jpg
    And back to the fire place, an old set of goggles, and a single coat hanger in the wardrobe cabinet

    Back out of this room and back into the entrance passage, the next room is the main hall, which are in the picture i took from the outside.
    Theres a big square metal box in the way to stop people getting in, but being small, managed to squeeze through.
    This is the worst part of the building, with the really dodgey window, and walls. Floor was better though.
    IMG_5563.jpg
    Some nice objects in here tho, including, the old fire sign, heaters and fireplaces, 1970's yellow pages, a drawing, record player and Engineers Drawing board.

    IMG_5584.jpg
    The next door leaded out to a lean too, with aspestos roof. Had an old desk, burnt out boild and manual, and a work bench. The exit door was locked.

    Then on the way back out.

    IMG_5606.jpg
    Theres a gate leading round the back, but that goes to a newer bungalow, im sure its still occupied, so didnt venture too far round, but there nothing too interesting.
    Nice old building tho, with alot of history behind it.
    Thanks for looking.
