    Default Remains of cheswyck school- deepcut


    Cheswyck School Deepcut

    Just back behind some trees, along "the bends", sits the remains of Cheswyck Roman Catholic School.
    I can find very little on Google about this school so ill tell you what i do no.

    John Virgo's daughter went here as a little girl (of big break) before 1996 when the school was closed.
    Very little of the main buildings survive today.
    From the remains we can see there were tennis courts, a lower classroom block next to a large playing field, at least one other classroom building at the top of the site next to a outdoor swimming pool and changing room.

    whats left today... as you'll see..nothing really. a couple of foundations and pipes remain, part of the swimming pool and boiler and a house.

    The only thing left standing is this white building, its gutted completely but still has a strange atmosphere about it.

    Been done before?? yes.. but not by me.
    as normal lots of pics...

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    Hi Strider8173

    I represent the Surrey Heath Residents Network. Your images of the school are superb. Would you consider giving me permission to reproduce them on our blog at www.surreyheath-residents.co.uk . You would of course be fully credited.

    I suspect this site will be soon sold for redevelopment so it would be nice to preserve even in some way how it is now. Your images do that perfectly.

    There was a fire at the school a couple of years ago. At the time local youths were suspected as being responsible.

    There was a bid to redevelop the land into a care home but that fell through. Apparently the owner of the land lives in NZ.

    I will DM you my email address.

    Best wishes


    Paul Deach
