    Interesting looking explore.
    Love pic 4 for its slightly sinister bizarreness.

    Cheers

    We took a trip there today, only succeeded in getting in the Leeds University owned blocks. Empty rooms that smelled of piss.

    We wanted to get into this place but we were seen messing with one of the wooden boards and gave up, they are quick to replace the boards thats for sure, they are all pretty new looking. Nice to know it isn't completely impossible though. ^_^

    Loving that dentists shot, i'm surprised thats all still in place!

    I guess you were the people that the occupiers of the site saw and reported to the Security Company. Evidence of people tampering with the window boarding was quite visible whilst we were talking this afternoon. Clearly if you are going to wrench off the boarding to gain entry, you will eventually get caught out. They site occupiers can hear you! As to your comments on the newness of the security boarding - yes it is regularly inspected by the site occupiers and security and kept repaired.

    Just for information, this is not the Eastmoor Secure Unit (that is at end of site behind the prison security fence), this is the old Leeds Reformatory School, later the Eastmoor Reform School.

    It just well could be these muppets responsible for ripping boards off! Check out the date on the picture info.

    You could be right. If one must act like that, make sure nobody lives on the site first. As I said somebody had been really messing with the security boarding. Trouble is everybody gets tarred with the same brush when we have clowns like that around.

    Also, never wear just a yellow vest on a dormant site - it is a dead give away that you have nothing to do with said buildings. No self respecting H & S official would allow his staff to go out equipped with only a vest and no safety boots or hard hat. A dog, wife/girlfriend and normal outdoor clothes are the best means of wandering around sites for a recce.
