Finnamore Wood in Buckinghamshire was a Young Offenders Institution which closed down on the 1st September 1996. All of the inmates were moved to the still existing Huntercombe YOI near Henley on Thames. The site was in use as a Young Offenders Institution (YOI) (ie a Borstal) from 1960 onwards and had been originally established as a Summer camp for children, later used for housing urban evacuees and refugees during the Second World War and again used as a holiday camp during the 1950s.
I had seen a report on here by joellep, so, being as this place is around 20 miles for me, I thought I should pay it a visit. There are many buildings there, and some interesting objects left in situ if you search for them. Some buildings are sealed tight, I think due to asbestos warnings. Encountered a couple of dog walkers, roaming through the site, who were friendly and asked me if I was thinking of buying and developing the site :D

Nothing epic, but I really enjoyed the 90 minutes I spent strolling here, and worth a visit in my book. :thumb
