    The Explore
    Explored this place many times and always seems to have something new for me each time. The winter has not been kind to the place this year so thought I would pop another little report on to show what the old girl is looking like at the moment.

    Highlight of the day was getting spotted by secca on the way out... nice enough bloke but he seems to think hes got the place locked down and always has! :D Told me he loved the "cat and mouse game" and that nobody gets in when hes on shift :D I didn't have the heart to tell him I'd been in there for more than 4 hours that day and numerous other days.

    The History
    Briefly, the abandoned St Joseph’s College, Upholland is a former Roman Catholic seminary, situated at Walthew Park, Upholland, Lancashire, England. The foundation of the large building were laid in April 1880 and college was opened in 1883. The buildings have recently been deconsecrated following the announced closure of the College which saw the last students leave in 1992.

    The seminary 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.

    In 1986 the total number of students was down to 82, of whom only 54 were Church students, and it was no longer viable to educate them on the premises. From 1987 the remaining students attended St. John Rigby College in nearby Orrell for their schooling, an arrangement that continued until the very last of these students left Upholland in 1992.

    Ah this place is fucked isn't it. Its a shame that most people who try weigh in copper don't have that much of an I.Q, and can't see that if they took the whole original porcelain sinks, they'd make more money, then again its a lot of weight to carry. What a shame.

    Since this the other sink rooms have been well and truly locked up as well.. theres lots of water coming in to some areas as well, few more winters with the amount of rainfall we had this year and that place will be in serious trouble :(
