    Default St Joseph's Seminary, Wigan. May 2008


    St Joseph's Seminary, also known as Upholland College is one of the North West of England's finest sites.

    The seminary was used for the training of Catholic Priests, was founded in 1880 and ran until the 1990's.

    The site was a popular urbex location a year or two ago, but has been left in peace until recently. A tip off about the change of use from a deserted to a live site gave me a very brief opportunity to take a number of visits earlier this month.

    The place is huge and you can easily lose five or six hours there. Although many areas will have been seen in earlier reports, I hope that some of these photos - covering the little seen ground floor, laundry, washrooms & showers and basements - are new to many of you.

    Lovely stuff! The library's looking a bit messy, I wonder if that's from filming.

    It's actually got much worse recently. They aren't taking care of the place at all.

    What a shame When I went there in January, the only thing I noticed was a bit more rubbish but apart from that, it was pretty much the same.

    Looks like all the roof dorms have been set up, esp with the book at the end and the matching curtains... what are they filming?
