    hi, sorry to open a first post with a sad note.

    at the beginning of this month another structure was taken by fire. the interior and roof of one of the buildings next to The Firs has been consumed. the incident required the attendance of the fire service forcing pressure on the land owner to bring in measures to secure the area. 'free' access via the gap to the side of the main gate is no more.

    during a model shoot there today, march 4th (after a previous rewarding scout around and shoot last november,) the land owner arrived on site with his security advisor. both were surprised at our presence but were very polite, reasonable and accommodating. however concerns were rightly raised that those with good intentions to shoot or document the site could attract (and potentially have attracted) unwanted attention from members of society who's purpose is to trash, vandalise and go further by committing arson. this is something the land owner cannot carry total resposibility for hence the need for a lockdown.

    during our amicable discussion it was noted that the site may not be completely off-limits to those with legitimate desires to visit but access will be at the sole discretion of the owner. ultimately the school will be no more and time left is very short. i was told the further along the site development progresses the harder and less likely it will be that anyone will be permitted access.

    enjoy while it lasts, it's been trashed more since november, only wish id found this place sooner.

    cheers. J

    A further two buildings have been burned down and barbed wire put around the fences. I have explored this school a number of times over the past year and to see it deteriorate so quickly through vandalism is shocking. It's harder to get into the buildings now due to the main gate being tired up at the sides and the wire.
