Stussy posted a topic in Public buildings, Education & LeisureAnother solo adventure, also been putting this one off for way too long! Was planning on doing it last year, but a couple of serious fires put me off as the residents call the police instantly the someone in there. But on a return trip me and JFR went for a reccy in the dead of the night, and a returned the following day and braved it! Sadly missed what could have been a fantastic explore before the fires! Bankhead Academy closed in 2009 after it was merged with Marpool Academy to form Bucksburn Academy in a new purpose built facility. The school was hit by 2 major fires, the last of which in June 2012, and is now currently being demolished by the Council. Taking the same approach I did previously I didn't hang around outside taking externals incase I was spotted, so most of the pics are internals. First target was the older part of the building which is largely stripped out sadly! Small boiler room is largely intact strangely! The main staircase As you can tell all plaster has been stripped from the walls, but contractors have left a nice path to walk around. Very long corridor (not Nocton long but long enough) Looking towards the new block, as you can see there is a lot of rubble, as 2 buildings have already been KO'd and out for the count! Old Classroom, really derpy Old Dining Room / Assembly Room I think Gym Hall The next target, the newer block, weirdly shaped like a block of hexagonal cellular network - It was the science and crafts block. Pic I found on the wall. Inside its clear they have been loading up the left over items for recycling / salvage. Pottery Kilns Even found loads of kids pottery! Boring Stairs Jackass would love this! Desh in the classroom Chair shot!! Top floor is now stripped Lets head for the roof! Was a bit to early in the night to get too close to the edge If you got this far, congratulations for putting up with my derp zone!
