Hello again! Possibly the most documented urbex building in the UK so theres no need for history, just check out the hundreds of other reports. I've legit done this place to death, seen every part other than a few rooms which are always locked. St Josephs hosted a recent meet up myself and -Raz- attended and that was a quality day with Mars Lander, Hank Moody and others. A personal Favourite photo, can anyone spot Raz? Photos from various explores; If you got this far, thanks for reading
Andy posted a topic in Religious SitesThe church once belonged to a boarding school, which was used from 1920 as a Roman Catholic school and later as ballet school. The main building served most recently as Islamic School, which was closed in 2007. Visited together with skeleton key, Lara & MiaroDigital. After we got caught by a caretaker, we waited a while and went into it later. The photos of the school, I'll show another time. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
This Catholic church was completed in 1853 in what was originally quite a heavily populated area however due to the war damage and continuing slum clearances in the post war the church lost much of its congregation as the district was rebuilt as a business area. In 1998 it finally closed when a new replacement church was built. Upon arriving there was a bloke onsite painting new white lines on the floor of the car park, after a brief exchange of words it turned out he was the caretaker of the site and he had no objections in letting us in through the front door! A real nice bloke who even gave us each a book about the place as we were leaving!
