Visited with @BrainL and 3 other (@BrainL maybe can say who on here as I dont know there usernames).
We got to the site at about 5am and then met headed up to the roof to cook some breakfast, was so nice sitting there watching as the light started to come over the view.
We spent about 3 hours there and only covered about 10% of the place, a revisit will be needed.
Also the sausage butty wasn't that bad either.

History
St Joseph’s Seminary at Upholland opened in 1883, the first phase was built to a design by James O’Bryne. Set amongst a backdrop of copse and wildwood amidst gently sloping fields, the buildings are flanked with rough-hewn stone. An upper and lower lake are separated by a gentle and soothing waterfall. The 150 acres of land the seminary is built upon had been purchased at auction in 1877. The grandeur of the chapels, meeting rooms, fixtures and fittings was unbelievable.

The seminary was closed during WW1 and reopened in 1919 along with a junior seminary. The second phase of construction commenced in 1923. The design was in a different style to the original buildings, however it was equally as grand. Landscaped gardens and sports facilities were also completed by 1927. A new chapel was added in 1930 along with 14 sub chapels. The final addition to the site was a science block.
