Was going to post this in the Islamification thread, might merge it in. If you have a spare 5 mins look up the history - very interesting. The location and architecture piqued my interest as I drove past it the other day, but then I started delving.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jameah_Islameah_School
Short history: Huge, beautiful Victorian ex-orphanage mansion near Crowborough, E. Sussex was run as an "Islamic school" but was shut down about 10 years ago by the government as it was said to be an extremist training camp frequented by Abu Hamza. When it was shut down as an Islamic School it had either 9 or 0 pupils, depending on the source. Look at the size of it!
"Officially" it has sat empty ever since, but if you look on YouTube and urbex forums there are many accounts of people seeing "asylum seekers" living inside, and in the chapel. Internally it's an absolute cesspit. Anyone would like to guess WTF is going on here?
Here the 'security guard' admits people are "living" there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ch0B0txiboU
I found this dubious website running a Islamic Retreat within the grounds, it makes no mention of the building: https://www.ukir.co.uk
Very fishy... Can't find a reliable source for this but Abu Hamza was definitely there at least as reported by the #vileBBC http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/5308626.stm(The last 3 paragraphs are Classic BBC!)
There had been allegations that the school was used in the training and recruitment of terrorists. According to testimony from Al Qaeda suspects held at Guantanamo Bay, in 1997 and 1998, Abu Hamza and groups of around 30 of his followers held terrorist training camps at the school, including training with AK47 rifles and handguns, as well as a mock rocket launcher. In 2003 or 2004, the grounds of the school were used for an Islamic-themed camping trip, at which Omar Bakri Mohammed lectured. The trip, which was advertised by word-of-mouth, was attended by 50 Muslim men, most of whom were members of al-Muhajiroun.
