    Default Lillesden School for Girls and Dr Who Site - Aug 2012


    Lillesden School for Girls in Hakwhurts sorry, Hawkhurst. Visited with Abel101 and Non-DP-Nat.

    Is it me or is anyone else jealous that kids went to school in buildings like this? The best I had was a crappy purpose built place with metal framed windows and no character whatsoever. I'd have loved to have gone to school here - although that might just be the thought of it being full of girls :p

    Some excellent history can be found here if you want to read about it, it seems a bit pointless to copy/paste bits whereas you can click on the link and see the info as the author wanted it displayed.

    And, if like me you're a fan of Dr Who, a very old episode called 'The Curse of Fenric'' was filmed here...

    I was warned that the floors in this place were bad, but after experiencing St Johns in Lincoln these seemed not too bad. 2 out of 3 of us didnt get to see the upper floors, they stayed back to make sure I was ok (or that was their excuse anyway :p )




















    ''Back Soon'' was written in loads of places.























    Yes, I did walk across this, and stayed dry.









    Able101 and Nat chilling out while I risked my life to get you lot some photos from upstairs...







    Ooops, looks like the resident Lillesden nutter got to Able...























    Again, thanks to Abel101 for being our guide.
