    Default St Josephs Seminary, Wigan, May 2016


    The foundation stone was laid in april 1880 & the seminary opened in 1883,
    being founded by Bernard O' reilly.
    St Josephs was the principal seminary serving the north west,
    as of 1987 the remaining scholers attended St John Rigby, in Orrell for their schooling
    an arrangement which continued until 1991
    the seminary closed in 1992.

    Very nice. This place looks a bit tidier compared with previous reports.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
