    Like the old Baptist College in Cragg Wood - used by Trinity College, and the 1960s buildings on the Reform School site - used by Leeds University. These places are well off the beaten track and students were not happy or settled there. University students did occupy the reform school site for a very short period. That it was not kept as overflow accommodation, is evidence enough as to its unsuitability, for this purpose.

    Cheers for the info DS, and the history of the site. Been searching google earth for months trying to work out where it is, and now eventually have found it lol.

    I always think its great when there are people who used to work in these places, and now still live there to be able to talk to and find out the history of them.

    Cheers,

    :) Sal

    So I take it that there's no issue with wandering around the place providing you don't start breaking and entering?

    No, it's the idiots that start fooling around and making a disturbance that upsets the owner's of the occupied house. A quiet nosey round the site should not cause problems. People banging about inside the buildings are obviously up to no good and just bring attention upon themselves.
