Something really sad about abandoned schools; just thinking about all the fun those innocent young kids had around the place I guess. P'raps I'm just too nostalgic!

I really felt that here too, mostly because they were special needs children I reckon...and especially the playing area with the climbing frames and tyre swings. That little sandpit almost broke my heart. :(

Cheers, Matt. Good find. :)

The place did have an uneasy silence and it was emotional to think this was once a happy place.

Thing is the building doesn't look in a bad way hope it gets reused but this type of thing is a bit sad.

My son also went to a special needs school (not this one though) and he was also very upset when it closed down as they were wonderful teachers and he absolutely blossomed there, went on to college then university. So many great schools were closed down and the remaining children were just chucked back into mainstream and left to get lost within the system. Thanks for your input, Walker. It's much appreciated. :)

I remember checking this place out many years ago, and wondering if it was actually closed, or just shut for the summer!
I see it's been redeveloped into yet another care home...
