    St Peters Roman Catholic Seminary, Glasgow. Feb 2012

    Present emotive69, pdixon new explorer

    After seeing a report on here and on our way on a Scottish landscaping trip decided this had to be worth a look, and some muddy beck jumping and climbing and an hour or two later can only say I was left in awe of this very very strange building. Having explored some supposedly dark and evil places this has a real bad feeling all of its own and don’t ask me to explain you just need to spend a little time here and it becomes apparent.

    St Peters Seminary is now actually on the worlds 100 most endangered sites list and is considered a piece of architectural history, if you can imagine a randomly designed badly made concrete 60s style car park full of training priests in little concrete isolation chambers you will begin to get the picture. The add to this a brutalist design of wrong ways, wonkiness and mazes, and huge concrete plinths. Massive concrete alters and then in the middle of all that a gothic mansion. Lost yet ?

    The seminary was built in 1966 and just 10 years later the design was that poor that it was suffering from problems and had to be emptied , it later became a drugs rehab centre ( yikes ) and I can only imagine that even if you weren’t in a state entering your mind would be a mess leaving here. It didn’t manage to survive the drugs either and water drainage issues meant it was unsafe so it closed in 93 and has been plagued by vandals ever since.

    Its now one of Scotlands grade A listed buildings and plans are underway to find another use ?? maybe an arts centre – cant think what else it could be ….. whilst here we bumped into a couple of scots lasses having a coffee and taking pics … so hello wendy and friend
