    Default Hertfordshire School Library Service, December 2018


    Intro
    Our original plan for the day was to travel north to Lincolnshire but due to engineering works it was near impossible, this was plan b. We had know about this for ages and explorerX had went about a year ago but was caught in seconds.

    The Building
    The site itself is rather large and I suspect may have been a school at one stage. The site consisted of 4 main building with a couple of smaller portable cabins dotted about. Some of the buildings were dedicated to social counseling and other such stuff, with the main building being the library.

    The Explore
    After traveling down and having a quick look at the Shredded Wheat Factory on the way we made it to the site. Looking at the buildings it seemed almost impossible to enter anything, after some careful searching we had some luck. Overall we managed two buildings through some risky access points.



    The Photos














    Conclusion
    Not the most interesting explore neither the easiest it was a good look around.
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.

    So if someone looks for a place with lots of windows to smash and paint some nonsense grafitti I think this one fits the bill. That's not decay that's mostly vandalism.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    It's a shame about the damage. Never the less it's still a good look around.

    We had expected vandalism but not on this scale. It is a shame.

    Thanks man. The building was rather terrible due to the vandalism, although expected.

    You suspect it was a school? It was a confirmed school in the 50s. And we didn't stop off at the shredded wheat factory on the way there.
