      History
      A former Catholic seminary and Licensed Hall of Residence of the University of Durham, covers 400 acres in the village of Ushaw Moor in the UK. It was founded in 1808 by scholars from English College, Douai, who had fled France after that college had been closed during the French Revolution. Ushaw College had been affiliated with the University of Durham since 1968. Until 2011, Ushaw was the principal Roman Catholic seminary in the north of England for the training of Catholic priests; finally closing in 2011 due to the shortage of vocations. The buildings and grounds are now occupied and maintained by the Ushaw charitable trust, and Durham University Business School is using the buildings from April 2012.

      Visited this whilst on my Durham tour, of all the places and I pick Durham, saying that I have infact had some of the nicest explores here.
      Was a lovely day, a little chilly. Turned up, parked the car outside some other derelict farm house but didn't go in there. Traipsed across some land to get to the Seminary and found our access point, relatively easy. I had been told this place had gone downhill dramatically and they weren't wrong, but still got some OK shots. Didn't manage to get in to the chapel, that was pretty secure.

      Easington Colliery Primary School was built in 1911-13 to accommodate the growing number of children in the booming mining town. The school consisted of two identical buildings separated by two yards with a dividing wall. One building was for boys and the other for girls. The lower floor of each building was for infants and the top floor for seniors.
      The school could accommodate 1,296 children. Built by architects J Morson of Durham in the Baroque style it cost £21,000 to build. The buildings served their purpose until their closure in the late 1990s. Since then the site was acquired by a development company who applied for planning permission to build 39 homes. English Heritage opposed the plan and achieved listed building status, resulting in the buildings standing empty and falling into decay ever since.
      Visited with Proj3ct M4yh3m, Kriegaffe9 and Cowboy55.
