Hey,

Took a little trip to Preston to see this lovely tourist attraction and met Sean Connery near the gate...pretty good trip! Visited with UltimateChadsta. Took me a while to find a way in with the usual comedy moments! Anyway...hope you enjoy the report!!

History:

St Joseph's was opened in 1872 as a refuge for catholic girls in the city centre of Preston, Lancashire. The orphanage is tucked away in the backstreets of the busy town centre and was run by the Sisters of Charity for our Lady Mother of Mercy.

The site closed as an orphanage in 1954 and was more recently use as a convalescent home with an onsite hospital including two operating theatres. Despite having received a Grade II listing, property developers are seeking to 'redevelop' the entire complex by demolishing most of the standing buildings which would to be replaced with high rise apartments.
