Here at Urbex Hub, we explore, photograph and document the history of abandoned, forgotten and unloved places across the globe.
RAF Ballykelly opened in June of 1941 as a base for RAF Coastal Command during World War II. From here, aircraft were sent out to spot, track and engage enemy submarines in the Atlantic Ocean.
During the Cold War, the airfield was extended to enable the V-bomber force to use RAF Ballykelly as a dispersal site. In 2008, the Ministry of Defence closed the airfield.
Lisnamurrican Primary School was situated in Broughshane, just outside Ballymena. Enrolment peaked at 30 pupils before it closed its doors in 2006 due to dwindling numbers.
Local celebrity, James Nesbitt, attended the school as a youngster. His father, James ‘Jim’ Nesbitt was the headmaster.
The school comprised of 2 classrooms, a canteen, restrooms, and a small outbuilding.
