Fight Club: A Cult School

In advance I apologize for the poor framing and lack of scene set up with these shots. This was one case where I knew I had limited time due to being seen. I figured I had 15 minutes until any trouble so I rushed through blasting off shots. I turned out to be exactly correct on timing and just dodged the bullet. A few came out alright and are below. This site is a pretty infamous ex-school that harbored a cult like organization that had its students physically fight, abuse each other and used brainwashing. Now closed, it still harbors a cold case murder. I was surprised at how much was left here. I will add more likely as I have time to look them over better.

Even when unnecessary, it just looks cool.

For an exploration on such a short time limit, these are surprisingly good. I doubt I could have captured any pictures quite so well under similar circumstances. Good job!




I was born too late to explore the world, but too early to explore the stars. So instead I'll explore the city, and see what I can see.

Thats a worrying history, you did well to grab the shots you did.




Yes that's right I'm an actual real-life British person.

Seriously.

Glad you were able to get some pics, I probably would have just bugged out.

Thanks, I was surprised any were usable and some are just a blurry mess.

I've learned to trust my gut like I think we all do, but I felt I was really pushing it. I'm very glad I spent just the amount I thought I had and no more.

The more I've read on it, including the first hand witness accounts, the more troubling the place has become to me. As with many places where horrible things have happened, though, it didn't feel oppressive or make an impression on me.

really nice post- dunno if I can say much that hasn't been said. impressive that you got these cool shots on such a tight schedule (and without freaking out like I would ^^'), and really interesting history behind the site.
are the details common knowledge in your area, or did you have to do some digging?

It's kind of well known, but also obscure locally. If anybody wants more on the story, PM me and I can send a link or two.

I've been wondering about this place for a while; definitely looks worth the drive, and in surprisingly good shape. Great photos and write up, and glad you made it out of there in time!
