Visited the seminary with Stranton after a previous dissapointing attempt in Nov where all I got were outside shots.

The college is half derelict and half maintained. The occupied side was operating as a conference center until very recently. I now believe Durham University (who own the site) are setting it up for study once again as part of their religious studies school. The appear to be no plans to do much to the urbex-friendly half. But, looking at the state of the building, that's no surprise.

The statue has taken a bit of damage :(

I have still to see this place.

Looks like the whole place is going down hill rapidly.

The damage through out is easy to spot from when I fisrt visited about 2 years back

Fuck 'um if they cant take a joke.

They once called me the king of St Mary's.

shot 23 is a bit special :D
Another place i have yet to visit, looking at the state of the building i'd better get in there sharpish......

Do not follow where the path may lead.
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
