Community Hall & Middle School, Mašev Village -(Right out in the Sticks-Chernobyl Zone) - Oct '16

Still on Day Number 2, we had driven way out into the sticks and were making our way back on the roads. The weather had dried right out but dosing in and out of sleep at this point
(the early morning and late nights had really done me in), I managed to drop my camera in my sleep. It was ok but this impact mixed with the rain and damp may have
led to its failure later on in the trip....

So as we neared the Belarus Border of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone; we stopped in Mašev (Mashevo), one of many abandoned villages and towns in the 1,600 square mile area of abandonment.

Here was a few houses, this little Community Centre and a small school. Another insight into how mind bogglingly large The Zone is, it took us a few hours to get here on the overgrown roads which were once large main roads.
This building was very small and we didn't spend very long in it, plus there was a nice school over the road!

Right across the road from the Community Centre is another reasonably intact building. This school looked pretty well equipped with good scientific equipment (for the time) scattered about classrooms.

It's still trashed and looted but looking pretty good for being abandoned in 1986.

The school is located 6.8km (11km) as the bird flies from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, and approximately 1km from the Belorussian border.

As huge, wide laned roads are now reduced to the width of British Green Lanes; it took some time to get here!

This is right out in the sticks and little is published about it. I would hazard a guess its a Middle School as those more looted examples in Pripyat looked similar
