Derelict Grammar School


Take a look inside this derelict Grade II listed Derbyshire grammar school

Pictures from an anonymous urban explorer have revealed the extent of disrepair inside an empty Grade II listed Derbyshire grammar school which has been derelict for eight years...

The school was designed by Derbyshire-born, school architect virtuoso George H Widdows and constructed at a cost of £15,000 nearly 110 years ago.

Mrs H was a pupil here when it was a grammar school. Lots of wood panelling, stained glass windows and polished parquet floors. Quite depressing to see the state of it now - a reminder that there is no way to wind back neglect and incompetence.

A once-fine building. And, of course, a once-fine educational system. All very sad. It's a reminder that good things in our culture need vigorous defence against that destructive alliance of malevolent bright sparks and heedless morons. That might be the most important lesson of post-war British history.

The left hated Margaret Thatcher; I hated Shirley Williams.

Sam - I agree, we do need to defend the best of our culture far mor vigorously and we need to do something about those malevolent bright sparks and heedless morons.

Tammly - yes, Shirley Williams illustrated everything that is wrong with UK politics, yet we never learned the lesson.
