A superb place.. It is a school and features beautiful gardens, ruined church, derelict labs, art classroom, an old manor house, amphitheatre, canteen, swimming pool, music room. e.t.c It's got a lot!​

I have been here many times now,(without permission haha) and have shot it professionally for a location library too, I am good friends with the caretaker and owner now so it's there to use if I need it.​

It closed late 2000, due to lack of money. I believe the main house is listed but not sure of the other buildings. All in all, a huge variety and mixture, and a great place to explore.​

Love the range of image work here Gigi, from selective DoF and wide open spaces to give us a sense of space. It's nice that the school has been relatively untouched by vandals or scrappers which is always nice. Good stuff indeed.
