My Previous trip to Lillesden School was a solo visit in October last year. Being very wary of the site (especially water damage), I didn't get very far, and also had to leave earlier than anticipated.

This time, I was back with King Al and Indy, and after a quick recce we were inside. The place hadn't changed much, but it was soon clear that many of the floors were pretty rotten. Indy led the way and we trod carefully upstairs. Some rooms were inaccessible and as Al pointed out, getting some pencils from the store cupboard would be lethal with no floor at all behind the door! Most of the rooms were stripped, but certain elements of grandeur remained, such as the carved sandstone arches, the stone staircase and mirrors, and original floors and fireplaces. Even the carved wood window frames had survived in good condition.

After seeing the main building, we shot some exterior pictures and worked our way through the smaller classrooms and outbuildings. The pool looked fresh, but I hadn't got any goggles so i'd have to save it for another day. The furthest building looked as though it was originally classrooms, but had been converted into a huge chicken coop at some point - with the double-barreled names of pupils still above coat pegs.
