St Edwards was close by to another explore we had that day so we thought we’d have a mooch around since we were already in the area! Originally established in 1904 as a home for orphaned boys, it also served as a school providing dormitory accommodation as well as the regular school rooms a chapel and the kitchens.
The place closed in 1996 a couple of years before the last priest in charge of the school was convicted of 18 cases of child abuse and jailed for seven years. Not to be completely tard with its more recent sordid history there are reports of people having spent time there with fond memories of the place and some of the employees.
