This place had quite a large interest for a short period and understandably I can see why. It's a large site with a beautiful church situated in the middle of it. There is several large accommodation areas and these seem to be situated either side of the church. One part seems in a far more decayed state than the other side. There was several other buildings outside the main building in use by the nuns. The convent was established by the community of the holy name, they also had property in Derby and London. They built the convent in Malvern in 1879 and the chapel was added in 1891, the convent housed 250 nuns. As with a lot of these large religious nunneries, convents and seminaries numbers started dwindling. Land started getting sold off and finally in 1989 the convent was sold off. It was bought n 1994 by the day of salvation ministries. It was used as a gospel hall till they vacated the site. They restored the building, but can imagine they only restored the church and one accommodation block because of the deterioration in the other block.

This is truly amazing photography x you have captured the peace tranquility snd reverence of this place x such magnificent craftsmanship in the chancel x reminds me of Greek Orthodox churches on the Greek Islands x also the living quarters are quite stunning but reveal the Spartan nature of living a life of self denial x my interest is drawn from places which represent sanctuary x well done Mikey

Absolutely stunning pics, a beautiful example of a wonderfully abandoned building.
I'm tempted to have a look as it's fairly local to me, or have I missed the boat.
