At first glance this old school looks to be about the most trashed location you have ever seen, the mostly glazed front has had almost every single window smashed and almost all the ceiling tiles have been pulled down leaving a huge mess of glass and tile debris all over the floors and outside, but it's what's inside that counts here.

At one stage it was a nursing school but at some point after closure pretty much the entire building has been taken over and systematically had some seriously incredible murals painted in many of the rooms and corridors by a duo of Belgian graffiti artists, Pete and Mata. The most impressive selection of graffiti I have seen, the only place that comes close to this is Doel also in Belgium but this takes it to another level. If you're a fan of skilled graffiti, this is one place you need to check out.

It's difficult to pick out a decent amount of photos so I'll just go with my favourites.

      History
      The Brent oil field, off the north-east coast of Scotland is one of the largest fields in the North Sea. Discovered in 1971, it was one of the most significant oil and gas finds made in the UK sector. Brent field production peaked in 1982 when over half a million barrels of oil and 26 million cubic meters of gas were produced… every day!
       
      The Brent oil field was served by four large platforms owned by Shell – Alpha, Bravo, Charlie and Delta. Each platform has a ‘topside’ which is visible above the waterline and houses the accommodation block, helipad, as well as drilling and other operational areas. The topsides sit on much taller supporting structures, or ‘legs’, which stand in 140 metres of water and serve to anchor the topsides to the sea bed.
       
      By 1976 Brent Bravo had started production, and later that year the second platform, Brent Delta was installed, which started production in 1977. Delta weighed 24,000 tonnes (the same as 2,000 London busses!) and the platform alone was as tall as the London Eye.
       
      The Brent field has reached the stage where production is no longer economically viable and decommissioning is underway. In 2011 Brent Delta stopped production. After 5 years of planning and 2 years of preparations, the entire Brent Delta platform was cut free from its supporting legs and brought ashore in one piece, where it will be dismantled and scrapped.

      In einem kleinen Dorf steht dieser kleine Tante Emma Laden seit mindestens 9 Jahren leer (Ablaufdatum des Biers).
      Man fühlt sich hier wie in eine andere Welt versetzt.
      Der Geruch von Seife und Putzmitteln liegt in der Luft.
      Selbst der Strom funktioniert noch.

      Did not see many reports from this hospital. It was one that was in the process of demolition. One wing was already gone but this gave me an nice access to the basement through the rubble. It felt strange. the heating was still on,power and the clocks were also working.. Some of the x-ray machines were still powered on.Probably part of the building was still in use,as there was an ambulance in the  garage.But i heard of rumours that there was an alarm there,so didn't explore this vehicle. Since I was alone this time, my senses were working overtime.At a certain time, I saw a vehicle of security parked outside of the building ,while I was on the top floor.Time to leave.I went back to the entry point,where the basement was in A pile of rubble and heard people going in just above me. Then I left via the back because the car was still parked at the front.
      A nice explore, at the last day of the year.

      In a small village, opposite of an old military area is these cafe.
      The owner has had his flat in the first floor.
      The building is in a really good condition.
