Abandoned Seminary (1st Visit)

As relative newbies when this first came to our attention, we were like rabbits in the headlights looking at other peoples images of this place. Completely amazed that other explorers were able to get into such a fine building, especially when we read the reports about cameras on every corner, security on site and alarms so loud that folk were reluctant to go back. This was like some next-level James Bond/Jason Bourne shit, depending on who you prefer (it's JB for me), and to be perfectly honest this was beyond our capabilities, skill and experience level, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Before we gained contacts and friends within the community of exploring, you ad to do everything blind. Like you'd see a great location but nobody would give you any tips or details on how to get in, because quite frankly that's how it works. So we studied images of the area on Google Earth and set off early one morning. It was a fail. We walked round and round the building scratching our heads looking for a way in to no avail. Got some nice external shots and at least we had mapped the area out, seen where the cameras were and some possible access points......
Cue a few months later and we had a major breakthrough with a tip off on access! Off we went, 4am in the morning, creeping round, avoiding cctv and whoever else might be lurking. Sure enough the access proved fruitful and after a slippery climb we were in! Within 10 mins the alarm had gone off and the place was circled by police and security. We looked out of the window at 5:10 am and the place was literally surrounded! While I cussed and bemoaned our bad luck, we decided to see how far we could get before getting caught. Turns out very far. We gave them the slip for an hour before they gave up only to return a few hours later and continue the game of cat and mouse. We got away again thanks to the fact another group of explorers got busted instead whilst we slipped away quietly, ready and able to fight another day......
