Having picked up a camera I'd bought from someone locally and wandered around the nearby woods somewhat myself and my girlfriend chanced upon this.

The History

I can't find a great deal of information on the school. Wikipedia references the fact that the school relocated across the road but doesn't give an exact date, although the replacement is a particularly new building (5-10 years?) by my estimations. The older school buildings themselves don't appear to be listed, although they are referenced, albeit briefly, in the conservation area report for Grenoside, which mentions that they were built in the arts and crafts style and exemplifies them as buildings with merit. Recent estate agents listings note they are Victorian in origin. Unfortunately I can't elaborate further but I will update if I get any more specific information from people locally. The buildings were recently sold at auction for £275,000 and there is lapsed planning permission for conversion to 8 dwellings, which, as I understand, is being re-applied for at present. I know this isn't anything epic but it has some pretty features and hasn't featured on the net at all from what I can see. Apologies if it's too much of a derp.

The Photographs

2. The light was as good as one could hope for, given that it's October:


3. Got a wide angle converter as part of the deal, this was the result from that:


4. HDR, just because I enjoyed the light flooding in:


5. Seemingly perpetual classrooms:


6. Gorgeous wallpaper:

8. What's left of the blackboard and such:


Thanks for looking,
