I passed these old buildings earlier and took a couple of pics. Has anyone explored them yet? Theyr the old school buildings that were built in 1392. The new school was built next to them in 2009 and theyv been empty/for sale since the new place opened. theres a couple of buildings on the site with a few secluded possible entrances. Noticed a couple of cameras there but they didnt look very active. i was there for a little while and nobody showed up.

They built very fancy buildings in Penistone in 1392, wasn't the rest of the UK still using timbre frames and infilling with wattle and daub?

We've always been way ahead of the rest of the country in Yorkshire ;)

I'm struggling to work out which end of the horse I put the batteries in!

noobness stopped me from going in :) plus the door would need a little pursuation.

Theres some pretty nice buildings in penistone i have to say. Went over to rotherham after that and had a look at hoober stand. Anyone know what the tunnel next to it was used for?

If you mean "persuasion", a bit of a shove because it's jammed in the frame is OK, anything more would be frowned upon by us lot and, more importantly, by Johnny Copper.

Hi all, new to this forum... anyway I did my first teacher training placement in that building, it was a beautiful old pile... the house in the second photo was the staff room. I always thought it would make a great place to live!!!! Best of luck having a look round there.

Oh my god, that's my old school! Not very interesting inside, maybe the cellar which can be accessed by the main library.

Hi. The buildings were not built in 1392 (obviously, most people will have realised that!) they were built in the early 1900s which is why they weren't grade I listed and have since been demolished. PGS was founded in 1392, which is why that date appeared on Fulford building. Unfortunately all the buildings have been levelled, this was my old school, the cellars were quite extensive.
