    Rightihoooo... I know this place has been done to death but I've been up there a couple of times this month and quite liked it, so here we are.
    Access went from tricky to not in the week or so between visits, kids or pikies I hope :rolleyes:

    Bit of history yoinked from elsewhere:

    Ushaw College (St. Cuthbert's College, Ushaw) is a Roman Catholic seminary, 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.

    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 College Chapel and Refectory were designed and built by Pugin. The original college buildings (1804-1808) were designed by James Taylor.

    On with the pics

    Cheers for looking in,
    I'm still getting to grips with this taking pictures lark so any constructive criticism is welcomed. :thumb
