Eastmoor Young Offenders Institute

This place is an abandoned Victorian youth correctional facility in Adel which opened in 1857. Such institutions were once more commonly called 'borstals'; facilities where young offenders and children who were failing to integrate with society were sent to a secure environment to be taught practical skills so they could find a vocation or gainful employment. There is quite an eerie feel about the decaying structures which populate the site; slowly crumbling away and being reclaimed by the undergrowth.
