On a recent business trip to London one of my colleagues was on the look out for pictures of gothic buildings or castles for his small children. He had told them he was going to Hogwarts. (sorry for the poor quality, cameraphone)
This is Tonbridge School.
My favourite quote from the wikipedia article: Headmaster Knox once noted that "wherever the Union Flag stands o'ershadowed, there you will find a Tonbridge boy ready to bring it into the light".
They were also good at deflowering the local girls and puking on the high street (not always in that order).
I also grabbed Tonbridge Castle....
This is a continuation of my other post MOD Aquila Part One and is part of my urban exploration series www.simoncornwell.com/urbex
Most of the other rooms in this block were empty, painted the cheery yellow and blue colours most loved by the MOD.
Walking back along the corridor and nosing in all the empty offices and laboratories on the way, we found another enclosed environment, although this one was used for a different kind of testing.
Whilst initially sceptical, we were already impressed and this was just the first building...
Some rooms featured large power points, disconnected pipe work, and warning signs about chemicals...
