So finally after many reconnoissance visits and as many failed attempts, I FINALLY managed to explore St Josephs Seminary in Upholland

This place has been covered extensively over many years so I won't go into the history too much, except to say that it was a huge Catholic College that opened in 1883 and was closed in 1991.
It is a Grade II listed building and has now been left to rot until it falls to the ground. The place has decayed massively in the last few years and nature is certainly taking over in certain parts of the building.

As many will know, the place is guarded 24/7, and has a 9ft spiked fence all the way around the perimeter with a lot of CCTV and motion sensors, as well as very loud alarms. I met up with BenJames and along with Lucy and Emma we made our way in to find we'd probably picked the best day ever to access the place. Gypsies had apparently been on site and cut the power, as well as cutting a big hole in the metal fence and leaving some open windows (This has all since been fixed and boarded back up). With CCTV and Alarms offline this was one of the easiest explores I've ever done, we walked pretty much straight in and spent a good few hours exploring this amazing place.

Here's a selection of images from the explore. I hope you enjoy them. St Josephs Seminary is one of my favourite explores to date. It'll take some beating.

Now we all know there's a gap in the fencing, missing boards & no power
expect heavy tourism or unwanted attention & a gradual deteriation of this already crumbling building.
Personally I wouldn't advertise this sort of thing on a public forum,
but each to their own.

I wouldn’t worry mate it’s a done to death derp plenty have been over the years, it’s in a poor state and personally I think it’s a shame it’s ended up this way.

It’s what it is, no different to anywhere else really, it’s been open and closed many times over the years, the alarms were never a deterrent even when they worked.

It’s already been fixed from what I’ve been told this morning. I said it was a lucky day, they weren’t going to leave it open for long were they.
I’ve edited the original post to state that it’s now been repaired and boarded back up
