    ive been admiring the reports on here for a few months now (great work you guys do btw) this is my first time post on here, bare with me :)

    quick copy an paste about the history then onto the pics....

    St Joseph's College was founded in 1880 by Bishop Bernard O'Reilly to be the Seminary serving the North West of England. The college was formally opened in 1883 and was situated in Walthew Park, Upholland, the geographic centre of the Diocese of Liverpool.

    The first Junior Seminary of the Diocese was founded at St Edward's College in 1842 as a Catholic 'classical and commercial school' under the direction of the secular clergy and was established in Domingo House, a mansion in Everton. Its President for the next forty years was to be Monsignor Provost John Henry Fisher. When the junior seminarians moved to St Joseph's in 1920 the school was taken over by the Christian Brothers

    Not sure what is going on with the pics in the report, but some of them appear to have been posted twice, can you please update and remove the duplicates.

    We walked around it twice before going in and the place looks amazing from outside so you should take a few mate.things only got eventful once we went inside.if you can put up with the noise for a while then get upstairs out the way

    Always a good idea on a public Forum to clarify that you "broke out" rather than "in" :thumb

    To be honest that made it sound a bit dramatic as we didn't actually break anything more moved stuff out the way and even closed the door behind us on the way out

    Im baffled by the alarm system, howv you spent 4 hours in before the alarm has gone off? iv been in there 4 hours walking past sensors and nothing has gone off, but went at night didnt even get into main building and a alarm went off, not the claxon alarm either a total different one, cant get my head round it

    am wondering if it is just designed to go off n frighten intruders rather than go through to security or rozzers , wonder if it is on a timer too ?

    I honestly think security set it off to scare people out because iv been in past sensors and nothing happened he knows majority of people will leave soon as they hear that thing its stupidly loud
