St Margret’s Convent

Author sophos9 - Last updated: 28.05.2010

After an eventful morning we visited this place.
It doesnt look like much from the outside. Really nice and a lot bigger than it looks.

Some history:

‘Rock Ferry, Merseyside: 1890 – 2004
In 1890, the sisters felt capable once again of responding to needs further afield, and established St Margaret’s Home, Rockferry in 1890. Here, the sisters were involved in residential care of the elderly, parish visiting, State agency work, an Irish Welfare Centre and work with the Union of Catholic Mothers. The sisters moved from St. Margaret’s in 2004 and the residential home closed. One sister still remains living in the area.’


Visited with agour, Maniac, Georgie and terry.




#3 The Chapel. The lighting in here was gorgeous.


#4 Most of the rooms had had the fireplaces stripped
out. A real shame seeing as they were so beautiful.








#8 The Kitchens


#9 Some sort of tunnel/ventilation thing. Was quite
cool, went round the outside of the boiler room underground
and in through an old window.








#13 Attic, complete with decapitated virgin Mary. Standard.




Thanks for looking.

Located in a small village in eastern France, is the Maison aux Masques, a.k.a. Villa Amande. Very little history to be found online regarding this place, but from what I could find out (thank you Google Translate!) was that the property is earmarked for a hotel, which explains the large demolition notice on the front gate.
