    The Explore
    This place seems to be the flavour of the day and is popping up everywhere recently. I loved the look of this place, nice to see decay without lots of vandalism so thought I'd pop over and have a look. Really quite enjoyed it, nice character to it :)

    The History
    Really struggling to find any proper history on this school, last updates on some sites are around 1999 so maybe it closed around then. Only bit I have found is that it had 220 students at its peak and age range was 3-11

    I didn't realise this place was so small, it looks huge on the inside

    Nicely shot - You're right, I'm now sick of seeing it everywhere on facebook, almost wish i'd not done a report.

    I can see why people are flocking to this place to be fair, it does look highly photogenic...

    Reminds me of Easington a little in the pictures, must stop by at some point.

    Nice pics Brian
