Kernow found this site - Well found mate. Top show.
Cheers for letting us get in and get a report up before ya :thumb

Went with Scotty and James PP.

Important
Some of the areas are a NO GO AREA due to bats. These areas are clearly signed so please do not enter and/or disturb them.

Well, access was very amusing, and the tightest YET. Kernow had given me a heads up and it was as mad as he said.

Scotty and I had gone up for a reccee to scope the place out before the visit proper. We only just got in that time. With awesome luck Scotty AGAIN secured us a safe and perfect exit and entry for the actual visit.

So on we went. Checking a ROC post first we eventually arrived. Nice and quiet so in we went.

Great place this. On with the history:

“Originally built between 1929 and 1931 as the teaching spaces and some staff accommodation for the nursery and junior sections of Dartington Hall School. It was designed by Ides van der Gracht of Delano and Aldrich, of New York.
Following the closure of Dartington Hall School in the mid-1980s, the building has been used for a number of other activities of The Dartington Hall Trust. Since 2000 it has not been used as it requires major renovation, which the Trust cannot afford to undertake at the current time. However, possible users are being considered.
Grade II Listed.“
On with some pics. We took so many so please see here for a link of the whole album -

Although stripped the place was fascinating inside.

Nice day out...we wouldnt be back outside for another 6 or so hours ;)
