    The Swimming Pool, Ushaw Seminary

    Afternoon...

    Here's a report from a location that has been done to death over the years, I've shared a previous report on here from our last visit, but I decided to go back and have a hunt around the 'live' part of the site, in search of the rumored 'abandoned pool'... And I'm glad we did, because after copious amounts of climbing, ducking and diving, this is what we found...

    That's right, a fully intact pool that hasn't been touched since it closed, lined with rather nice blue tiles and some brilliant natural decay...

    To be honest I'm not surprised it hasn't been touched by anyone else, only myself and Borolad are stupid enough to go to the effort it took to get in here really... Suppose it was worth it in the end though!

    Hstory

    This has become a bit of a touristy one, and most people know about this history of the site by now...

    However I will include the history from Wildboyz report and this image of the pool back when it first opened.


    Pictures

    Right enough! Picture timeeee :rolleyes:

    Ok that's all for now, I have a few rolls of film that are waiting to be developed too, so may bung a few of them on farcebook or the photo's section. Cheers for looking guy's as always, and oh, if you do want to give this a try, rope will be required ;) Also with this been the live part of the site, watch out for secca and nosy monks :p: haha

    Cheers Guy's!

    I wasn't sure of it's existence, was just a rumor... Had to go for it once I'd seen the archive pic though! :)
