    New College Durham was closed in roughly 2004 and is in the process of conversion to..... new apartments :rolleyes:

    The college has relocated to new premises and the existing site has been developed to the point it is now a lived in housing estate with only the two remaining buildings awaiting work.

    I visited this place initially back in July and managed the smaller of the two buildings with XM657 and came back tonight after a recce and managed the main building. Access was ridiculous, getting out after even worse!!!

    Anyway, on with the pic's

    First Building;

    This place was used as lecture theatres, but most of the stuff has been removed.

    The main building and tonight's explore;

    This building was used as dorms on the upper floors and had one or two lecture theatres on the ground floor, and a kitchen area'
    Most of the rooms are empty, which was a shame, but there were still one or two interesting rooms.

    The smaller building and note the CCTV :eek:

    This one is the same shot as Northern Ex took, but I'm posting it up just as I'm chuffed how well it came out - taken with a little Nokia E50 mobile phone! This is taken from the smaller building looking towards the larger building and is basically the opposite shot to above - which is taken from the larger building
