St.Joseph Orphanage History.

St Josephs orphanage for Roman Catholics girls was opened in Preston, Lancashire in September 1872. It's existence owed to Mrs. Maria Holland who gifted £10,000 to the site. £6,000 of which used to construct the building and £4,000 used to endow up to 30 spaces preferably given to 'Prestonians'.

In 1877 A further Gift from Mrs. Holland was used to build to construct a hospital for the sick poor, build adjacent to the original site.

On 22nd March 1879 the orphanage was obviously credited as a certified school however this was cancelled in 1890. The whole site subsequently became a hospital with accommodation for all the workhouse girls given at the new Moorfield orphanage, which opened in 1905..

During the first World War, St Josephs provided care for wounded soldiers including some Belgian troops. From 1958 the site also acted as a training Centre for nurses. After the hospital closed in the 1980's the site was used as a care home however this closed in 2003 after being deemed unfit for purpose.

The Explore

I have wanted to complete this explore for some time and finally the stars aligned and i was able to make it happen.

St.Josephs Orphanage was an absolutely amazing and so much to see. This adventure was done during darkness. There are a few challenges to compete before you get in. There was only two possible ways in and one was cometely too dangerous to even attempt. So went for the easiest way in. However will let you guys and girls find.

The building itself was so cool to see in the dark. The building itself unfortunately is in a bad way but gave me the Silent Hill chills for sure. Much the of the ceilings have now fallen in and in places can be quite dangerous.
