Lillesden School for Girls (Kent, UK)

Before it became a school it was known as Lillesden Estate Mansion, built south of Hawkhurst, Kent in 1855 by the banker Edward Loyd, who moved there after marrying. The house and estate remained in the family until just after the First World War, when it was then sold and eventually became the Bedgebury Girls Public School.

The school closed around 1999 and has been abandoned ever since.
