    Default Crookham Manor - AKA Crookham Court School - Harlequin or Motability Manor - May 2013


    Splored with Skeleton Key, Lara, Trog and Peaches

    Crookham Court stands on the former site of Crookham Manor house, built around the start of 14th century and destroyed in 1543, and subsequently Crookham House which was demolished around 1850. The construction of the current building started around this time and continued in two more phases over the next fifty years.

    It’s served several purposes such as a manor house, a junior school and a school for children of people serving at Greenham Common. It was abandoned for some time after the US Air Force left the area and purchased in 1961 when it was used as a boarding school until 1990

    In 1988 three of the teaching staff were sentenced to a total of 26 years in prison for the long term sexual abuse of pupils, the school closed in 1989 and in 2012 another teacher, and then United Nations Head of Security in Kosovo was jailed for four years after a pupil filed complaints with police after informing his counseller of the abuse from his teenage years



































    Yup, like some of the staff here would lend you 10p to phone Esther










    After we got out to get the externals we got spotted and gave it legs, we may have ended up using the neighbours garden as a short cut and found an animal graveyard, Pet Sematary or what?

    beautiful pics!
    Those who destroy what's been left behind, are those ignorant enough to believe that history only belongs in museums and books.

    Really like this place. A wonderful galleried stair hall, thanks for sharing. It's a shame the place is tainted by it's fairly recent past. The torn childline sticker is very poignant.
