    Default County High School - Braintree - Feb 2015




    I couldn't find much history on this place but I will tell you what I know

    The school was originally know as The County High School, originally built in the early 1900's

    It has changed name a few times over the years and eventually ended us as a DHSS office block

    It has been closed for many years and is currently being renovated to be converted into a number of luxury flats

    The main hall was stunning.


    here's a recent picture from a newspaper article about the place being for sale







    and now a few of my pictures :)

    It looks very American in design, although it could be fitting for the period. Nice work
