I was out exploring with Sarah from Derelict Nation. This beautiful building was once a convent and in more recent years a nursing home. There is a follow up blog post here.
There were a lot of things I wanted to say but I’m aware that people who may have stayed here or family members may read this blog so I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
Brilliant photos and I just love the idea of ‘if wall could talk.’ So thought-provoking.
Wow- these are great!
Great images and I like you love exploring old derelict properties.
Thanks Brian, yes there’s something fascinating about them.
What would the walls tell us then? 🙂
It would make you wonder.
Good morning Val! Wonderful photos, as ever..are you going to tell is where the building is and what was its function? Hotel? Residential home? It has sparked my curiosity!

Thanks. At one time it was a residential house, followed by a convent, followed by a nursing home.
Thanks for sharing, what a wonderful building, I could almost hear the nuns voices.
Is it an old convent maybe?
At one time, yes.
I love walking arond old buildings, closing my eyes and picturing the dinner parties and quiet reading rooms of years gone by. You’ve captured it so well Val. Hopefully someone will rescue it one day and return it to its glory before the decay is irreversible.
Thanks Dee. I hope someone will rescue it too, it’s such a beautiful building.
Love it Val. Just working on my pictures; we have captured different views of the place. Thanks for the link. Sarah x
An absolutely epic set, Val, top drawer my friend!! So very haunting, it really leaves me yearning to know more somehow.
Thank you. We are heading back again soon, this place is very special.
Really interesting subject Val.
How does one go about getting into such a building? I’d love to explore similar buildings here in England. Any tips?
Hi Olly, it’s best to get permission if you can. With this place the door was open.
Lovely set Val. Now you’re hooked 🙂
Thanks Denis 🙂
My late mother (RIP) was taught here by the nuns. She could turn her hands to anything.
Sorry to hear about your mother. It is a stunning building and a shame to see it left to ruin
