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.
