The Derelict Convent is a large, sprawling building containing a church and living accommodation. It has been left in a derelict state for a number of years.

While the Convent sits boarded up within its derelict grounds, a housing estate surrounds its perimeter. It's a strange contrast between two different worlds, living side by side.

The convent is an impressive and imposing building thats only function now is as an unusual and dangerous playground. It is possible to walk in to the building through the unlocked doors. Upstairs all the floorboards have been stolen, leaving only the rafters.

The dereliction of the Convent also shows some things of natural beauty. There is some amazing fungus growing in the kitchen.

The most impressive part of the Convent is its church. It is a beautiful part of the building, yet the stained glass is now smashed up and the font lies smashed on its side. This building is 150 years old and must house many memories.
