History: done before

Ushaw College, 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 for two years, whilst its own site is redeveloped.

After an un-eventful birthday the day before JustSam and I decided to have a day out to the midlands, but the sat nav had different ideas...throwing the sat nav in the back of the car it was time to use the trusty google maps..not just any google maps this was Stussys google maps. So up north it was.

I did mention to JustSam that our recent pilates class may come in handy.

After an eventful entrance we shared out the opal fruits before I headed off and took a few snaps

A few more snaps and it was time to make our way out of the chapel, easier said then done.

After a quick check on the family jewels and a laugh from JustSam we were on our way to have a quick look around the rest of the place.

A few wrong turns here and there and somehow ending up at the old toilet block more then once it was time to go home, just a quick look through the window.
