My second trip to Greenbank Synagogue aka The Ark in Liverpool. The now abandoned building was constructed in 1936 and was used by an active congregation until 2007 when the synagogue finally closed its doors…
The abandoned Monastery Mont G. There is not a lot of information about this place that I can share a very large complex the huge chapel is flanked by corridors of rooms used for accommodation and teaching. Visited with Kriegaffe9 and Andy K as part of the ‘missing man tour’ I was really pleased to see the inside of this place, the huge chapel was quite impressive and I quite liked the ground floor corridors which were starting to show signs of decay. Enjoy the photos.
Pensionnat Catholique is an abandoned Boarding School somewhere in France. The place is huge! Complete with a large chapel which shockingly was not located on the ground floor… There was also a large sports hall and lots of sprawling corridors of classrooms and labs. Visited this time with Kriegaffe9 and Andy K as part of the ‘missing man’ tour we spent a few hours here before sunset capturing the really nice light which was streaming through the windows in the late afternoon!

Briefly, the abandoned St Joseph’s College, Upholland is a former Roman Catholic seminary, situated at Walthew Park, Upholland, Lancashire, England. The foundation of the large building were laid in April 1880 and college was opened in 1883. The last students left Upholland in 1992 and the building has been empty since 1999.
Briefly the abandoned Ushaw College, a former Catholic seminary 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 and finally closed in 2011 due to the shortage of vocations.
One of the Asylums which I unfortunately missed when it was in its prime. the derelict St Mary’s Hospital aka Gateshead Borough Asylum is now stripped bare and is an active building site. Very little remains of what was once left behind at this place.
Part 2 of this visit to the abandoned Ark Synagogue in Liverpool. Plenty to see at this place and lots of nice light so I ended up with more photos than expected. I hope you enjoy the rest of the report 🙂
An abandoned grade 2 listed Greenbank Synagogue in Liverpool which was built in 1936/1937 and then closed in 2008 when it was given grade 2 listed status. The building is falling into a state of disrepair but was still full of all sorts of contents to photograph…
An abandoned convent somewhere in the United Kingdom. After receiving a tip off from a good friend that this place was once again open we made it priority number one to visit. After making our way in very early and passing time in the main chapel while the sun started to give us enough light to work with, we began to shoot for what was probably less than an hour before we were interrupted…
