    Visited on the same day as St Gerard’s hospital, this place has gone downhill since some previous reports. I haven’t done a building for a while, so spent a few hours on site, and enjoyed looking round its dark atmospheric corridors and rooms.

    This place probably started out with the best of intentions; shame this place has got a dark history.

    The site is operated by The Father Hudson Society, which was originally founded by a priest, Father George Hudson, who died in 1936. Though there are active buildings on site there are also a number of abandoned buildings too. Built in 1904, primarily a home for orphaned and abandoned boys it was also a school - in addition to the dormitory accommodation. There are also school rooms and a chapel within the home. In 1998 the priest in charge of the school was convicted of 18 cases of child abuse and jailed for seven years. After only three years of his sentence he died in jail, but not before the Pope had stripped him of his rights as a priest for his sins. The building has been empty since 1996 and the feeling locally is that it should be knocked down because of it's sordid history.

    If anyone is thinking of going, be quick, as demolition could be started soon. Explore with Miz Firestorm and a non member – thanks again to Miz Firestorm for access.
