    Visited with Oakleyframer, Badge, JdotN15 and a non-member. An early morning start after a sketchy night stay at a guest house (Badge) organised :rolleyes: where 4 of us shared a room and none of us could be bothered to turn the light off so shoes, oranges, sweets and chocolate bars got thrown at the light switch. We made our way to St Joes, which was our first explore of the day, in which we spent 5 hours wondering around the various rooms and chapel whilst also bumping into 2 other explorers.We couldn't trust badge and JdotN15 for 5 minutes as they had Oakleyframer spinning them around in the washing machine :p. St Josephs was one of the places I've been wanting to go for a long time but never got to it so was really good to finally go and see it all.

    History
    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. The seminary was closed during WW1 and reopened in 1919 along with a junior seminary. The second phase of construction commenced in 1923. St Joseph’s, usually referred to by its students simply as Upholland, was the main seminary serving the North West of England. The sister seminary at Ushaw provided the same services for the North East. Both institutions housed both a junior and senior seminary. The junior seminaries provided secondary education in a semi-monastic environment to boys aged 11 to 18 who wished to pursue the priesthood. The senior seminary taught adults philosophy and theology as they prepared for priesthood.
