    We went to St. Joseph's for the first time now well over four years ago and back then it was a bit of a bugger to get around, with at least five or six seccas hanging around the outside. All different now with apparently no one around to challenge us. Anyway, the newish parts are being demo-ed so there is a bit less to see but the newish bits weren't really all that anyway. This time I tried to concentrate more on capturing the inside of the tower, which has some of the shonkyest staircases ever I have used.

    St Joseph's Society for Foreign Missions was founded in 1866 by H. Vaughan with the foundation stone being laid in 1869. Work on the college was
    largely completed by 1871 and occupation commenced soon after. Work on the church began in the same year and it was finally consecrated in
    1874. The college was further expanded during both the 1930's and 1960's. As a Roman Catholic missionary devoted to the propagation of the Gospel among unevangelized peoples, it was heavily involved with work in Uganda and in other parts of Africa. The college was closed in 2007 and the site is now undergoing redevelopment.
