In the 1980's I did most of my seminary formation at St Cuthbert's College, Ushaw in Durham. By then the Junior Seminary had been closed for some years and was at that time being used as a training facility for some sort of youth opportunities programme. Only once did I manage to gain entrance in there and was more than a little surprised to see how much had been left intact - altar cloths still on side altars, for example, while the main chapel was being used for brick-laying practice. It is actually physically joined to the Senior Seminary buildings. I came across these photos at this link:
taken by someone who had simply gained access to what is now a derelict building. What a shocker it is! This fine chapel with its decoration, statues and many other items used for the devotion and prayers of hundreds of seminarians just left to rot. A seminary in the latter stages of decay - how apt a metaphor!
As Venerable Pope Pius XII once said:
"I hear all around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject her ornaments, and make her feel remorse for her historical past."
