I do love concrete. It is no surprise that I am totally fascinated by St Peter's Seminary near Cardross. The modernist building was built in the 60ies for the Roman Catholic church. It was abandoned in the mid 80ies and left to ruin. I hear there used to be some excellent parties and raves.

I first came across it during the Hinterland NVA event in 2016 a sound and light installation set inside the concrete ruin. A second opportunity to visit arose in a year later during the Doors Open Day.

There was an ambitous project to secure the ruins and use parts of building as a public art space. The project failed to raise the required money and A listed building is left to disintegrate further.

I would very much love to visit again.
