Girls in an abandoned girls school !!… Who’d-a-thought it…


Back 2 School II

Some of you may possibly recall the original Back to School post, from which visit these shots also come… I still have so many shots from that visit that require proper processing… and figured it was about time to air at least a couple more of them…

This particular school is an old abandoned girls school… and for a bit of urban exploring they don’t come much better… I find it amazing though that a mirror like this is still there, and even more amazing that it’s still in one piece… although I do know it’s now sporting some rather elaborate graffiti…

The place was originally built as the privately owned Lillesdon Estate Mansion, way back in 1855, and became a public girls school just after the 1st world war… It eventually closed around 1999, and has been abandoned ever since… and I believe is now owned by a property developer who is intending to convert the building in to private apartments at some point in the future…. The place is amazing though, with so many rooms… Still need to arrange that return visit though…


And For Todays Lesson…

Another shot from our recent trip to the abandoned girls school… This wasn’t from the old original part of the building seen in the previous post, but was taken it the more recent outbuildings that were obviously used as the school itself… It’s an assumption, but I’d guess the main old building was used more as live in accommodation for the students…

Very much a dump and run post today, as I’m feeling a bit rough, but I’ll catch up with everyone either tomorrow or over the weekend…


Come Dine With Me…

Seriously, I am definitely going to have to have some stern words with my staff…. Not only has my interior designer had a relapse, it would appear my head chef has run off with the cleaner…. I came home the other day, and all I wanted was a caviar sandwich and a mug of 1945 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild Jeroboam, and this is what I done did gone and discovered…. I had to make my OWN sandwich, and pour my own wine….

You just can’t get the staff these days….
