eek been a long time since I posted here!

So who did me and my friend Graham (er not the same as the one above) meet today about 3pm?

Sorry really should have introduced ourselves a bit more but think we were all just thankful to have stumbled upon another urbex rather than a bunch of buckfast swigging neds!

I'll edit and post up my pics from Saturday's little exploration.

Cardross was a nice site to lose my Urbex virginity!

Interesting and informative article in the Gruniad today. It's good at placing the building in a historical context, and argues that its survival is still far from assured:

Yes, it was. I had always wondered why it was abandoned so quickly.

Personally, I would prefer it were it to be preserved as it is now (if that's possible) rather than restored to anything resembling its original condition. Both more beautiful to look at and a more accurate social document.

Totally agree, only thing they need to do is make the education block and nuns quarters accessible.

BUT only to HG-ers and all UE-ers
