    Default Monks Retreat - March 2016


    To start off with this, I was staying with a friend for a few days and he told me about a few locations he wanted to visit with me at the time. Unfortunately, things didn't go to plan and instead I ended up visiting this place during my time.

    So here is the Monks Retreat. The history has already been well mentioned on another thread, so here's a short amount. The retreat was used to offer facilities, residential living and training. Monks came here to cure the sins of the past or present, a priest who was here, through pressure of the church turned to satanity. The building burnt down in 2005 and shortly became derelict afterwards, because of this. It is rumored to be haunted. Now in the present day, the place has been trashed, and stripped in every way you could imagine, only a small handful of movable items remain.

    This was a pretty good explore, and a nice find. Spotted a younger group of explorers when I got there.
