    KooK and I were at a loose end today as we both had days off... Fun and japes ensued as we slipped, scraped and fell our way into this old college building.

    Here are some photos I took.

    Loved the shafts of sunlight, illuminating the abandoned gear. Looks like St. Michaels college, Kendal Lane.

    It's my old school, quite right Derc, but it's the far end where Kendal Lane becomes St. John's road.

    Odd how many memories come flooding back seeing that!

    Hi Joe,

    Forgive my ignorance on the IT front... How do I send you a private message? Nothing major just didnt want to start a new thread with a question) I can't see the option against your profile?

    I used to live in Hanover Sq. as a kid (short trousers) and well remember climbing a freshly tipped pile of coke in the college grounds,
    the wet stuff that had been at the bottom of the tipper, was now at the top, result, very black legs, shorts, shoes and socks.
    A rollicking and hose down when I got home. I have the college coat of arms set up on computer after doing a 'Welcome to' sign for them a few years ago.
    If you want, I could always email you a copy.

    Karl,

    You should be able to send one now, however if it is regarding access to this place then I'm afraid I won't be able to tell you as it has been almost 18 months since I went.

    Great photos! Doesn't look like it's been used by others much since it's been abandoned?

    It hasn't been used by anyone legitimately since it was abandoned. A few squatters and the like...

    These photos were from over 18 months ago and I'm told the internal condition of the buildings has now deteriorated somewhat.

    It was unused for a while after closure, then St. George's Crypt moved their operation into part of the school whilst their premises in town were refurbished.

    It's been properly empty since St. George's moved back to the original Crypt.

    (And once the police move out of the Belle Vue station, the condition will most likely decline even more quickly...)

    just seen your pictures, that looks like good fun. im intrested in old buildings and it's sad to see many fine old buildings of leeds fall in to desrepair and the vandals moving in. I've see other similar photo's on flicker where people take photo of old buidings. there is some really good stuff on there.

    Loads of great photos on the 28dayslater website, for those of you who are interested and haven't seen it before. I go though phases of getting addicted to that website, it's compulsive.
