    Arrow Secondary school, Highlands, July 2008 - Part One...


    I'd heard the demo team were moving in th this place last week, so thought it would be prudent to pay a visit, so Bryag and I headed off...

    The school is situated next to the new and live school, which was built on the playing-fields in front of it, it was originally built in the 1930's and has been added to over the years, resulting in a sprawling mish-mash of buildings and styles..

    This site is big, it took us a couple of trips to get round it all :)

    First we hit the Science labs :







    Fume cupboard's are still there :



    Then we moved on :







    Funky cloakroom :





    Tuck shop :)



    *ahem* :o



    Then we found the Science theatre :



    And the gyms :





    Then on to the Art department :



    Place had a sinister vibe





    And then, as light was failing fast, we headed out :







    This was a cracking explore, in spite of doing myself a mischief falling off a fence, and the Hound of the Baskervilles announcing our exit to the whole town! It was my first school, and I thoroughly enjoyed it :)

    WOW, what an excellent explore.

    Love that animal/jungle mural on the walls next to all the seats. Love the science theatre, and the gyms, especially seeing so much gym equipment left in there. Love the art room, and all those computers. That skull and the grim reaper pics are great.

    Excellent find and excellent pics. I really do like this.

    fantastic site, loving the tuck shop, and the abandoned hallways.
    Knowledge is realizing that the street is one-way, wisdom is looking both directions anyway
