Visited with The_raw , Lolly92 and a non member.

We were in the area to visit another site so we took a mooch around here, great to meet the raw and all in all an epic day out with great company, probably spent too much time in the local pub :D

An amazing building with a dark history as we all know.

History Stolen online

Crookham Court stands on the former site of Crookham manor house, built around the start of 14th century and destroyed in 1543, and subsequently demolished around 1850. The construction of the current building started around this time and continued in two more phases over the next fifty years.
It served several purposes,one as a manor house then a junior school and then school for the children of the Military serving at Greenham Common. It was abandoned for some time after the US Air Force left the area and purchased in 1961 when it was used as a boarding school until 1990.In 1988 there was a well-publicised case of child abuse by several members of staff which was covered on Esther Rantzen’s show That’s Life. This had apparently been going on for thirty years but it was only when the headmaster Mr. Gold joined the school in 1987 that it was discovered and reported. Three were convicted, including the principal who was the owner of the building. Over twenty years later the teacher who had been set free was also convicted when another victim came forward

Rather surprised this has been opened again, I was told it was sealed pretty well. That being said however, I guess it's just par for the course with these places!

Very decent snaps buddy.

Access from 2 or 3 weeks ago was sealed up but there was a new way in already, judging by some of the drug paraphernalia and scribbling on the wall there must be some local shits who have made it their den, they've even had fires in the main hall which is a shame as it's clearly going to get more and more fucked from now on if they've got anything to do with it......

Just wondering if this was still accessible and still actually there :p?
My friends and I are wanting to work our way down there and go around it and take some photos
We live about 1 and a half hours away by public transport :)
