I visited this amazing place on Monday

History curtosy of wikipedia

Ushaw College, a former Catholic seminary and Licensed Hall of Residence of the University of Durham, covers 400 acres in the village of Ushaw Moor in the UK. It was founded in 1808 by scholars from English College, Douai, who had fled France after that college had been closed during the French Revolution. Ushaw College had been affiliated with the University of Durham since 1968. Until 2011, Ushaw was the principal Roman Catholic seminary in the north of England for the training of Catholic priests; finally closing in 2011 due to the shortage of vocations. The buildings and grounds are now occupied and maintained by the Ushaw charitable trust, and Durham University Business School is using the buildings from April 2012 for two years, whilst its own site is redeveloped.

Nice collection of pictures, quick tip, i'd leave out what day you visited, I know you haven't given exactly what date you went but still, just saves any drama if the site owner or security decide that something has been damaged in the property and decide it was you that did it.

nice ones :thumb

Looking well trashed now, like the Shiel Duck pic though :)

We visited a few weeks ago and managed a total of @ 2 mins on site before getting busted :rolleyes: We hadn"t even shut the car boot before the camera gear was going back in lol

It seemed after a few recent visits by others they were certainly on the ball.
