  1. This was an old explore from 2012 , the church and school closed in 1977 and Im not sure if its still empty or has been redeveloped
  2. Explored with Ant after a mooch about the town hall. Background; Honestly i couldnt find very much on this place online, so i went through the Order itself. As it turns out, the mini illuminati isn't very good at keeping records as they couldn't tell me much either. However, research has paid off! Opened in the early 1900's this was the second Masonic Hall in Pontefract. Located next door to the Crescent theatre and eventually linked via a large metal door (which is welded shut) this was used as a community hall once the Masons moved out in the late 60's. Since then it has had a number of uses including a gym and leisure centre. The only real clue that this was ever a Masonic Hall is the Freemasons Crest on the staircase window. The Explore Having been for a look around Pontefract town hall in search of the elusive underground police station (Now being used by the WY police NPT) we decided to take a quick mooch around a building we found months earlier but never really taken any notice of. With the entry being a little easier than the previous time and it being daylight i noticed a few bits and bobs that we missed last time, such as the crest on the window. Oh i almost forgot... Pigeons, Thousands of them... Admittedly this is nothing spectacular but it hasn't been reported on before that i know of Couple more pics; Thanks for looking

  4. 2013: I assume this is still here as the development of the school swamps it 2012: Well here is the report of the chapel I didn't manage to get into before. Access was available this time round. No we did not light that candle. I can only assume we scared off someone who was practicing something, or it was left by a photographer?! #1 #2 #3 #4 More At: http://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/sets/72157630913100660/
  5. 2013: Not much to update on I don't think 2012: Very many thanks to Greg, AKA Northern_Ninja, of 28dayslater for scouting the location. This school was built in 1903, as an Independent school for boys. By 1939, the school educated 800 pupils. A junior school was built on site in 1929, but by 1970 it closed due to dwindling numbers. The senior school followed suit in 1977. Sometime after this, the site was used by the United States University Academy, but closed in 2007. The site is being converted into apartments in 2012. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 I found this and dug it out from under the stage #7 #8 Awesome service tunnels! #9 #10 Sadly no way into the tower More at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/sets/72157630913100660/
