Derelicte my halls: Jordanstown

I haven't come across many new abandoned buildings in recent times so today I revisited this beauty that I pass on my way to work. It is terribly fire damaged but signs remain of a very elegant building, including this gorgeous Victorian tiled porchway. I'm sorely tempted to arrive one day with a hammer and chisel to prise the tiles up but that of course would be illegal.

The building is just one of many that are abandoned and lying open to the elements on the edge of a school complex and this house was obviously used as a school at one point because there are blackboards and half-burnt desks lying around. Nothing salvagable unfortunately. And believe me I've looked.
