Inside time warp mansion with broken piano and rotting books untouched for years

This sinister mansion school is a snapshot of a time gone by filled to the brim with pianos and decaying books after being left for decades.

Now found by an urban explorer, photos reveal blackboards from the last lesson and music sheets still fitted on the piano.

The derelict 18th-century mansion of the Assembly of God Church House in Derbyshire was once used as a school and church, The Sun reports.

Urban explorer Kyle, who uploads his discoveries on his Instagram @kyle_urbex, has explored 450 sites across the country after falling in love with the hobby in June 2020 as an escape from his job in a warehouse.

Since making his way through the abandoned rooms of the old St Margaret's Maternity Hospital in Leeds for his first trip, he has gone on to explore countless abandoned properties.

Including making a terrifying discovery of a human zoo in a park in Paris.

He said: "Upon entering St Margarets, I was taken aback by how much history was inside the building and how it was left to rot and decay, and be forgotten about.

"From there, I started researching more places and most of the time it isn't just about going inside the building, it's more about researching the history behind the building which is completely fascinating.

"I'll do my research beforehand, I'll pick an area that I want to go to and, if I only have two or three locations in the area, I'll research them on Google.

"I will go on Google, and say I am going to Derby, I will type in 'Derby eyesore building' or 'derelict Derby building' and see what results come up.

Kyle snapped a bunch of incredible photographs that show the eerie derelict Derbyshire building with untouched pianos and rotting chairs thrown across the floors.

A photo of a staircase inside the abandoned property features piles of rubbish and rubble, as the walls and interior has began to fall to pieces from years of neglect.

Some windows can be seen to be rotting as well, with some without glass and windowpanes.

The building was last recorded in use as a school in 2001.

The 25-year-old explorer takes his hobby very seriously and makes trips to abandoned properties around three to four times a week.

Paired with his camera, he gains access to buildings usually through pre-existing entrances like smashed windows and broken doors.

Not always heading alone either, his girlfriend and fellow abandoned enthusiast Laura, comes along for some adventures – having previously walked through the old Derby Hippodrome.
