I don’t really know a lot of information about this place code named Schola CLXXV. It was a monastery with an attached school and this lovely chapel. Externally, from the main chapel doors, the place looks quite unassuming, however when viewed from the back it soon became obvious how large the place actually was. On our trip we only managed the main chapel as well as a staircase and corridor nearby but from the photos ive seen the rest of the place is pretty stripped out now. The place closed only a few weeks before our visit and we were fortunate enough to meet with the owner who spoke emotionally about the place confirming that the school part would be demolished while the chapel was hopefully going to be saved from demolition.
Visited with Baron Scotland, Lowri, Dystopia, Annelieke and Michel. The photos speak for themselves really, a small but beautiful chapel, very little decay or damage… the roof was starting to have cracks forming just above the entrance but otherwise it was pretty much like the day it was abandoned only a few weeks prior. Lighting was great, not only did we have access to the mains electricity to light the place artificially but we were blessed with some great natural light in which to photograph the chapel. A short visit but definitely one I’ll remember on with the photos:
