Ushaw College, Durham - Jan 2012

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.
