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.’

#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.

cool, went round the outside of the boiler room underground
and in through an old window.

Come to Poznan next time, we have lots of objekts”
We went to Poznan, spent 8 hours there then got bundled into various 4×4′s and driven north. There were moments during the road trip I was reminded of the opening scenes of Hostel and was certain at any moment we were going to be killed for our cash and cameras
