The Royal Park School is an abandoned primary school in Leeds. Between 2009 and 2011 the local community ran a campaign, the aim of which was to take ownership of the derelict building and turn it into a community centre. This campaign included a short occupation of the building by the local community.

The zine collects photographs taken during the 2009 occupation of the school by the local residents. The campaign has unfortunately come to a halt although the local community continues to raise awareness on the issue and continues to fundraise. I hope that this zine will continue to raise awareness of the school and the issues surrounding it.

10 pages digitally printed in full colour with 170gsm covers. Comes packaged in sealed poly-bag.
