    Has to be the most interesting entry I have experienced to date :crazy but created much LOL's. A great place! Did bump into some other explorers who well lets say were not 28DL fans as we are apparently arsonists and thieves :wanker Im sure they are lovely fellows but I do not like playing the my Urbex is better than your Urbex. This did create a comedy moment from the various scenarios that went through Jst's head when the guy shimmied over stood for what felt like an eternity and then spoke.

    You have all read the history but in case you haven't :rolleyes:

    Ushaw College (St Cuthbert's College, Ushaw) is a Roman Catholic seminary, . It was founded at Douai as the English College, Douai in France in 1568, which moved to Ushaw Moor, four miles west of Durham in England in 1808 and became a Licensed Hall of the University of Durham in 1968. It is independent of the University but offers courses validated by the University. Both Church and lay students study at the college. In 2002 the College rejected a report from the Roman Catholic hierarchy that it should merge with St Mary's College, Oscott, near Birmingham. In October 2010 it was announced that the college is to close in the summer of 2011 due to the shortage of vocations in the Roman Catholic Church, and that the site is likely to be sold...
    Some of the college's buildings are no longer used, but some have been converted into a conference centre. The main college buildings are grade II listed, however the College Chapel is grade II* and the Chapel of St Michael is grade I. The Refectory was designed and built by Pugin, as was the original chapel although this was later dismantled and replaced by the present building designed by Dunn and Hansom. The original college buildings (1804–1808) were designed by James Taylor.

    I know you have all seen alot of this place recently so I have selected my favourite alternative shots of the place of little features I found. Enjoy!

    Lovely shots Sats, the B&W effect works very well.

    Here are a few of mine, great to meet you guys and a classic access made funny by the slippery tree.

    Apart from the Flickrwhores breaking up our group photo, generally being egotistical about their HDR eye rapers and how many times they'd visited Whittingham ("I've written a book you know"...) The morning was quality, loved the little chapel and glad that we all got to see it.
