Taxal lodge was built in 1904 and was the home of Lt. Col. H. Ramsden Jodrell, Who died in 1950. The lodge then became a Special School, specifically for disruptive and emotionally disturbed children. This Lodge replaced an earlier Taxal Lodge originally built further up the valley on the site it is believed,of the former Overton Hall which is now Overton Farm bearing the date 1810.
The current Taxal Lodge closed in 2005 and has also be vacant for many years and has now become vandalized and neglected.

A friend and I decided we would attempt an explore of this site, so we headed up to Whaley Bridge to have a look.
The first external shot of the school and we knew this would be a good explore.

We decided first to explore some of the surrounding buildings before tackling the larger main building.

We then entered the main building through an entrance at the rear as to not draw attention to ourselves from the neighboring houses.

We entered to find the ground level of the building in complete darkness with only a camera flash to lead the way!

Fortunately the upper floors were more well lit up and we could maneuver with more ease.
