Report - St. Josephs Seminary, Upholland. October 2014

An early start saw Cregg and I tripping back over to Lancashire to visit this massive seminary… again.

My first encounter with this superb old complex of buildings was in 2010 and we’ve visited numerous times since with varying results. Usually the story was that we’d not get very far inside before being turfed off site, finding it all sealed, setting off the brain invading alarm etc…

So, almost a year since our last foray inside, we were in once again this time managing to spend enough time inside to cover significant ground. We still missed a lot and didn’t find those fucking sinks too - so called splorers.

Bumped into a couple of other sets of chaps in there, nice to meet you all.

Historywise, the buildings have been empty since 1991 and have been the subject of planning applications for residential conversion. Nothing of the like seems to be anywhere near mobilisation and I wonder if anything will ever be done.

The internal damage and degradation is getting steadily worse, with an entire bay of the roof in the library completely collapsed, masonry and all.

Anyway, wafflezeit is over. GranularHighISO™ Photos:

Epic pics jst :thumb epic place also, it's a tough one to get in to and get round without the alarms/security/police but worth the hassle at the same time.
