    Default Ushaw Junior Catholic Seminary (Ushaw College) - Durham - March 13 + June 13

    A local explore to me, this place is packed full of history and can even trace its roots back to 1568. Possibly one of my favorite explores to date due to the original features and gothic styling.
    Designed by "distinguished" architect Pete Paul Pugin, the junior house was opened in 1859 and closed just over 90 years later in 1972. The younger students were tansfered to St Josephs College in Lancashire.
    The entire of the college is listed (including the old "hand ball" wall next to the junior house), some parts grade I and others grade II

    Photos are from 2 explores, both times with a non forum member "Tombo" but a good friend of Scrappys.
    On the first explore we did the main parts of the Junior house with Tombo, his other half and Mr Ex. Due to there being the 4 of us we decided to leave the chappel so as not to cause any more noise then we already had.

    Second explore was just me and Tombo, a very last minute plan that saw him barreling a few hours up the motorway for a few hours explore before heading off back down again.
