    Default Oakbank Resedential School Aberdeen


    Oakbank School in Aberdeen was closed a couple of years ago and was as far as i am led to believe was sold recently for 7 Million. Although parts of the main building ARE still in use, many of the annex buildings are not. Security does look tight tho so i wasn't about to start climbing drain pipes.

    Main entrance sign

    Front of main building

    Not sure what this was

    The paint shop

    Office/Workshop attached to what used to be green houses

    Safe

    Chemical Cabinet



    Don't thin this will pickup much of a signal now

    Circuit breakers

    Foundations for the green houses

    Inside one of the sheds

    Inside what i think was a vehicle workshop

    Not the best picture but this is looking threw a gap in one of the boarded up windows to the ard department

    I drove my car in a while back and when I went to turn in a car park, 2 cars followed me out, so never went back!!

    That looks like a nice, wander-able explore with some interesting stuff to see. Excellent pics. :)

    Folks should be aware that there is a constant presence on site, so entry isn't possible.

    And whilst the caretaking staff are very nice people, they do take their job very seriously. They do it so well, the interior is absolutely pristine.

    This is one of the few places I'm more than happy to see off limits to exploration.

    Well, at least until the day that demolition is announced anyway. :D
    Do it safely, or not at all.

    precisely the reason why i said parts are still in use. As far as i am aware, The main building is at very lease B listed which would mean demolition would be off the cards.
    Unauthorized entry to most parts would be considered Breaking and Entering, and Attempted Theft.
    I hope this clarifies things.

    As we all know, just because a building has listed status, doesn't mean that it won't be demo'd. A couple of places spring immediately to mind, where money talks. (Allegedly ;))

    There were originally plans lodged to demo and build offices. Now it appears that the purchasers want to build at least 4 houses. Oh, looky... here's one such application:

    http://planning.aberdeencity.gov.uk/...l_20100201.asp

    Note existing building to be demolished, as per warrant ref. B091853 :icon_evil

    How long before the rest is redeveloped? Hmm

    You do have a point, Marshall college's current state springs to my mind.
