I’ve split this report into 2 posts (on the same thread) as this site was in two parts really. The monastery, and the university.

Soz it’s a bit pic heavy, but its an awesome , and large. If you’re not a member of this forum you’ll only get the top post.

The Explore:

Access to this place was done in the early hours of the morning to avoid being spotted. As it was way too dark to take photos I curled up at the top of the chapel stairwell to get some much needed sleep.

(Thanks to Covert Urbex for taking this)

As the sun rose, and light slowly filtered in, my eyes blinked open to reveal where I'd been sleeping:

The Organ... Fully working! I'll get round to posting a vid of me being surprised by it when I tap a note!

Amazing report again. No need to apologise about the number of pictures, when they are as good as these, the more the better. :)

Cheers for the lovely comments guys and gals! It really was a huge place!

I'll post up a few bits of video soon. It was odd leaning up against the front door, with members of the public leaning on the other side waiting for a bus, just a couple of inches away! :p
