Yorkshire Martyrs Catholic College in Tong, Bradford, first opened as a boys school, Cardinal Hinsley Grammar, and a girls school, Margaret Clitheroe grammar, in 1961. It closed in 2010, leaving 49 years of teaching behind, due to a falling number of Catholic children in the diocese.

A fire in September 2013 ripped through the humanities block, which was thought to be started by groups of youths.

Couldn't find significant history on this place, so on with the explore!
The Explore
What an easy explore this was! Just a case of walking around a fence, up and in. The first bit we went into was a science block, clearly seen better days. Amazing find this, there were work books, newspapers, an SEN register, revision books, the lot. I was pleasantly surprised things were in such a good state! One but of graffiti in there and looks about as mint as you could get for an 8 year old, partly destroyed building.
Into the main building, floors were caving in, metal swinging upstairs, charred remains of old rafters and dreaded exposed asbestos. We were so surprised to see the swimming pool and amazing bits of art on the walls. Graffiti yes, but great to look at. The sounds in the building were so eerie, and the echos made us a tad uncomfortable but it made for our biggest, most interesting explore yet. We didn't explore the burnt out humanities block for fear of falling through the floor, but as we could see, it was completely stripped anyway. Great place, huge area to explore. Would recommend this so hard! Easy access as well! Onto the pics!
