|Pound Place School
Stanbury Village [53,51]
A gloomy, soot-stained Victorian school with wrought iron fencing and a forbidding school gate. Now a tall grey-stone building, covered with graffiti.
Pound Place was a peculiar Victorian experiment which survived into the early 21st century. This boarding school was dedicated to children and adults with physical and mental disabilities, and was intended to encourage a spirit of solidarity and positivity among the disabled community of Malton. Many of the residents heralded from nearby Ridleybank, and had incurred their disabilities either from the illnesses caused by its rampant pollution, or had suffered injuries in its industries.
Admirable though its intentions were, the reality was that Pound Place degenerated into little better than a workhouse for disabled children and adults, and the abysmal conditions and chronic underfunding made it a hotbed of discontent and rebellion. Even before the apocalypse, the school was prone to outbreaks of violence, ransacking of classrooms, and students barricading themselves into their dorms to prevent savage retributions by the teachers.
Only young children were still at the school when the mysterious 'infection' spread; many of them became undead within these very classrooms. The piglet flu pandemic of 2009 indicates that use of hand-sanitizers and masks would have been unlikely to have made any difference to this massacre of the innocents.
