mookster posted a topic in Public buildings, Education & LeisureIt feels nice to be back home exploring although today of all days I refuse to use the term 'easter eggsploring'.I bailed out of doing this place twice in months past as it is situated on a very busy residential road so never found the right time to access the place, but Easter Sunday seemed like a good bet and so I finally did along with Mr. OverArch. To be honest it was a let down, it looks like such a great building from the outside with the clock tower and everything but the inside is screwed - the floors are riddled with dry rot so only a couple of the concrete-floored classrooms and the corridors are safe to walk on. No access up the clock tower either...well there was, but looking at the state of the ladders brought back bad memories from Birkenhead's Central Hydraulic Tower so was an instant no... Fibbersley Park Primary School closed around 2010 or 2011, and in 2013 the building containing the hall/gymnasium was destroyed in an arson attack and subsequently demolished. Not a huge amount to see as it's been largely stripped of everything, but it satisfied my curiosity at least.
