St Edwards was built in 1904 by a priest named Father Hudson as a school/home for boys. The building shut in 1996. A scandalous history was unearthed in 1998 when a priest was convicted of abusing 18 children there between 1957 and 1965.


Inside some parts are a delight and many original features still survive, other parts are slight modernised and plain. There is the largest collection of garish wallpaper I have ever witnessed in one building. I will save your eyes from that horror although others may not visited with Cuban, Dazza and Lost.

I was so excited to find I have captured loadsa orbs in this picture - this corridor did have that "feel" about it.
