Derelict Seminary

On Saturday I took a trip out to a village called Cardross where deep in the woods is an abandoned Seminary. Here's a couple of pictures and video of the trip:




The Altar:


Processional Ramp:


Balcony at the top of the building:


Looking down:




Old stairs (too dangerous to climb)






I could have sworn I saw a figure to the side of me from the corner of my eye when taking this picture. It happened twice





There was some really freaky graffiti:





And a video of the whole thing, needs sound really...

YouTube - St Peter's Seminary, Cardross


Thanks for looking

Hi Lainey, the man at 2:04 was a trainee priest (photographed in the 1960s I think). It was an old photograph I super-imposed onto the video taken from roughly the same angle where the film was shot. The silhouetted figure you see walking along at 3:15 is me

I can't see anybody else in the video! I'll tell you it's the creepiest place I've ever been - stuck in the middle of nowhere. Something really weird happened. You know the part at 3:15 where you can see me silhouetted walking past? It's gone from the original video tape. We can't understand it, but it's just not there anymore
