Brief History:

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

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.

"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.

"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.(info taken from YEP website)

Seeing as this place has been done to death Ill just get on with the pictures, there aren't many as they were taken on my iPhone and as such most came out shocking

Upon entering the site this is the view that greats you:

This is the old church, unfortauntely we couldn't get in here:

Some shots in and around the courtyard:







A few select interior shots(the ones that weren't super poor quality)






We found this tiny rusty key on the floor in the upstairs workshop:

And where it fits!

And finally the bit of floor that gave way underneath me and put an end to a great day out:

We saw multiple shifty dog walkers through the windows but only 1 patrol the whole 3 1/2 - 4 hours we were there.
Will update this thread once I've returned with my proper camera.

(Mods I think I've done the images right but they're not showing up when I hit preview)
