Lillesden School for Girls in Hakwhurts :mrgreen: 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 )

I love that place to bits! Great pix there.

I had to laugh at "dolly" hanging from the light... I left her behind a metal grate in the cellars down in what looked like a little infirmary but clearly she's come to life if she's toddled off upstairs to neck herself!!!

Well done.
