Ushaw College, near Durham City, to close (From The Northern Echo)

TRUSTEES of a 200-year-old Roman Catholic seminary have begun consultation on its closure, it was announced last night.

Would-be Catholic priests have been trained in the picturesque surroundings of Ushaw College, near Durham City, since 1808, when St Cuthbert’s Seminary relocated from revolutionary France.

In recent years, the college has begun hosting conferences and visits to cover costs.
