This is a repost due to changing image host.
Not exactly a new site this one but hopefully worth posting, despite the fact we've all seen it before.
Was my second visit to this place, didn't get to see the chapel last time and due to failing light all of the photos came out badly. Lesson learned we set our alarms and left early to ensure good light. Was really good to be able to spend a bit longer in there and the highlight had to be having a picnic in the chapel

Sorry if it's a bit pic heavy.

A bit of history nabbed from wikipedia

The English College, Douai was founded in 1568 but was forced to leave France in 1795 following the French Revolution. Part of the college settled temporarily at Crook Hall northwest of Durham. In 1804 Bishop William Gibson began to build at Ushaw Moor, four miles west of Durham. These buildings, designed by James Taylor, were opened as St Cuthbert's College in 1808. There was a steady expansion during the nineteenth century with new buildings put up to cater for the expanding number of clerical and secular students. In 1847, the newly built chapel, designed by Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin was opened.[2] This was followed by the Big Library and Exhibition Hall designed by Joseph Hansom, 1849-1851.[3] The Junior House, designed by the distinguished architect, Peter Paul Pugin, was added in 1859. St Cuthbert’s Chapel, designed by Dunn and Hansom, was opened in 1884, replacing an earlier one by Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin, which the seminary had then outgrown. The Refectory was designed and built by E. W. Pugin. The final development came in the early 1960s with the opening of a new East wing, providing additional classrooms and single bedrooms for 75 students.
