St Josephs College - Mill Hill - Jan 2013
St Josephs Seminary - probably recently more famously known as for the filming location of ''Call the Midwife''... ''St Joseph’s, in Mill Hill, North London, was used by the show to re-create Nonnatus House convent in Poplar, where the original Call the Midwife books are based.''
(Image from 'Call the Midwife'' - these people were not there on our visit )
A landmark grade II listed building in Mill Hill, north-west London is to be transformed into 115 studio suites for the retirement market. Following many years as home to the St Joseph's Society for Foreign Missionaries, St Joseph's College has been granted planning permission for conversion.
Developers are due to begin building this spring
THE VISIT: Visited with Steve2109...
This place is on my drive to work, a few months ago last year I popped by to check it out and have a bit of a recce - still in my work gear so didn't attempt entry, but back then it looked like this...
But on our visit it looked like this Mind you I've been wanting to shoot something in the snow for a while so this was a perfect opportunity.
Lots of long corridors...
Library with spiral staircase...
This place has plenty of staircases...
The majority of the site is just many empty/featureless rooms like this one...
Some out of bounds areas for the film crews (Kitchens, boiler rooms, etc)
And finally, the chapel. The main reason for the visit
And a few snowy externals...
Hope you enjoyed as much as I did
Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
