I look forward to seeing your work. I did a photographic essay on the place and there is so much material to work with up their it is uncanny. Part of that reason I guess is that the building was designed by 'William Atkins' and he apparently had a lot of gothic inflences in his design. The contrast of gothic with the religious catholic church aspect at the same time gives the place a strange feel.

Also the building has one of the longest corridoors in the country, I took snapshots of the corridoors at arms length through broken windows and the results are quite good. Good luck with your project.

I'll dig out some of the photos that I took if you like and link them to you via flicker or whatever for your research?
