  1. The Explore So the day started at 2.30am with a plan to hit Haslar nice and early.. soon as we arrived we were spotted by lots of secca and the game was up before it even started sadly.. with our first explore failing miserably we started on some backups with Carmel being one of them. Really nice building and a nice relaxed explore.. Hope you like the pics The History Carmel College was a predominantly Jewish co-educational bording school in England operating between 1948 and 1997. It was first situated at Greenham Common near Newbury and then at Mongewell Park near Wallingford, Oxfordshire. It was Europe's only Jewish boarding school. It also had a very small number pupils who were not of Jewish descent, as day pupils. It was referred to as the "Jewish Eton" and Carmel College alumni were referred to as "Old Carmelis". Typical boarding fees in 1996 were £10,000 per school term (i.e. £30,000 per year). In 1990 it topped the list of the 20 most expensive boarding schools in the country. It was closed in June 1997, mainly owing to diminishing pupil numbers and financial difficulties, having been seriously affected by the termination of government assisted places by the Labour government.
  2. Carmel College. History. Carmel College was a predominantly Jewish co-educational boarding school in England operating between 1948 and 1997. It was first situated at Greenham Common near Newbury and then at Mongewell Park near Wallingford, Oxfordshire. It was Europe's only Jewish boarding school. It also had a very small number pupils who were not of Jewish descent, as day pupils. It was referred to as the "Jewish Eton" and Carmel College alumni were referred to as "Old Carmelis". Visit We set off in the morning with the hope to go to Carmel in the morning and then spend the rest of the day at another place. upon arrival as we were walking to the site we were greeted with a pick up truck flying towards us. the old chap stopped us and said we weren't allowed down there because people break in, so i told him we were only here to do some wildlife photography, he then asked us to leave. we found another way and got to the labs, after spending a fair bit of time in there we moved onto the main building, and found an open window to slip through. within minutes we were grabbing our cameras to make a run for it. next thing we know, we're stuck in a corner with an angry old man storming towards us then grabbing my camera. after arguing for 5 minutes he phoned the police, and then accused us of breaking and entering, and tossed some hateful words about for 10 minutes until we were searched and kicked off by the police. Definitely one to remember, thanks to the non os member who drove us there ft. Biebs thanks for looking

The Visit After visiting a few times with LoocyLoo and TheVampiricSquid we saw a change in this place as film crews come and go slowly ripping lights from the ceiling and we started to notice the giant plaques go missing from the walls this place is still worth a visit! The Caretaker is abit thick tbh after him chasing us out he caught up with us when we was loading into the car and he asks “was that you guys in carmel†no that wasn’t us we was visiting our grandparents he replied “ok†and drove off without asking any more questions anyways enjoy! Sorry its so pic heavy guys this was over a few visits with a few different camera techniques...
  4. Built early in the 20th century as a monastery, in a quiet Belgian village. Around the 1950s it became a care home for the elderly and at some point it was extended into the home nextdoor. It had the capacity of around 50 residents. Now it lays dormant and nature is taking over. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. I hope you enjoyed. I loved it here. You can see a few more shots at Carmel De La Reperation
