The Crumbling Convent – January 2014

This convent was closed soon after the turn of the century and has been neglected ever since. Grand plans for a new set of apartments fell apart a few years after the convent’s closure and since then the owner has given the site a wide berth. There seems to be no effort to secure it any more and the site is now falling apart. It has been heavily vandalised and stripped of anything of value (including what seems like every inch of metal!) It’s a shame to see how quickly the building and the attached chapel have deteriorated in this time. Thanks to fellow explorer, Stellaluna for showing me around the site.
