  1. Thought I'd do a few reports of some explores back in 2010/11 of Buildings that are now either Demolished or now not accessible. First one is Bell Baxter High School which was in Cupar, Visited this back in July 2010 with Revelation_Space. I don't know too much about the history of this place other than the Bell Baxter High School existed on two seperate sites the original building pictured here which was built in 1889 and a more modern site (built in 1962 and gradually expanded since) just up the road a little bit both were in use until this one was surplus to requirement then eventually demolished. Excuse the photography I'm a little apprehensive about showing it as It is not up to my own standards nowadays, I've moved on a lot in 3 years! Since I always seem to forget external shots here is a street view of the building, although at the time we visited the lower windows were covered in metal grating. After finding access which ended up being on the roof and through a tiny skylight on to a weak roof of an internal hut in the craft and design department we ended up with the first view of the school. Which was a little dissapointing after seeing photos of this place full of leftover stuff which had been cleared out not long before we got there . There was this funky looking device left there though. Moving on through a number of empty corridors and rooms containing nothing interesting we ended up in the Gym Hall which was rather nice, wish I stayed a bit longer to play on the ropes really. Quite liked the tiles in the showers As we had a few more sites to check out we moved swiftly on to some of the classrooms, these were by far the nicest parts of the building. I assume they were the science glassrooms as they had gas nozzles for bunsen burners on the tables. Love seeing black(green)boards in these places. Obligatory cliched chair photo Corridors were starting to peel and mold was creeping in. All the other classrooms were just empty, however I did like this door. Moving on to the oldest part of the building got a little strange, started of normally with this lovely staircase. However on moving up to the top floor of this building things started to look a lot more like a house rather than a school. Not quite sure why this is I found it quite strange, as far as I know it was never a house but I could be wrong. Fancy a bath? And that's it as far as images go, we made our exit and found that getting out of the skylight was considerably harder than getting in. Especially as the chair used on top of the weak roof to reach it gave way under my feet as I was half out! Managed to scramble out with just a few cuts and we then moved on to fail getting in to any other location that day There you go my first report here and I chose one of the most boring sites I have visited I'll try get a few more up when I have the time.
