Visited with Tcake as always, though we beeter get in here before its gone, some buildings have gone and the chapel is uber-secure however, we did get in for a look around, the place is a shadow of its former self but still and intersting place, we bumped into a random dude with tripod and canon always good ,we managed to sneak into the guys bedroom who was sleeping rough without disturbing him (best way we thought) but we gave that area wide berth thereafter.

Historyz

Eastmoor school in Adel, Leeds, which first opened in 1857 as the Leeds Reformatory for Boys, later becoming Eastmoor Approved School.

Dumb Media said:
But readers are urged NOT to visit the abandoned site, which is privately owned and extremely dangerous.
Ghosts are believed to haunt the settlement, which lies next to the new Eastmoor Secure Unit, "In the 19th century, a child under 14 could be sent to a place like Eastmoor for begging, wandering, consorting with thieves and prostitution.

"In more modern times it became the Eastmoor approved school and housed more dangerous criminals.

It held up to 34 children up to 16 years of age with over 200 admissions a year.
"One of Jamie Bulger's killers, Jon Venables, apparently spent time there in the 1990s.

"As time went on, the site grew, and became a self-contained village. Some of the buildings are still littered with clothes and toys, which gives the whole place a really eerie feel.

Dumb Media said:
"But the buildings really aren't safe. People shouldn't go up there because it's trespassing and it's dangerous."
After Eastmoor closed as a community home, it was used as accommodation for Leeds University students, who left when a new campus opened in Headingley in 2003.

The "ghost town" is owned by Leeds City Council, who intend to sell the site to make way for a new housing development - although it is thought the chapel, later used as a gym, will remain.

The other buildings include staff housing and a laundry, as well as residential and education blocks, one of which was used to film a fire scene for ITV1 hospital drama The Royal.
