    I worked at Ushaw College a a waiter/general factotum for two summer vacations in 1964 and 1965 during their conference season. They were long days (though with an afternoon break) but I had a great time helping out the Nuns and permanent staff look after the visitors, including visiting senior catholic clergy, Archbishops et al. Had use of the swimming pool too, during the breaks between meals. Being shown how to churn butter in the diary by one of the Sisters from the farm milk is still a memory I treasure – having never done it before or since!

    So is that Ushaw Moor village in the background.? Seems there might be a few rows of terraced housing in the top left corner. I thought Ushaw village was on this front side.?

      Hi Ron, the village with the terraces in the background is Langley Park. Closer to the rear of the college is Esh Hilltop. The photo is quite strange as it doesn’t show the perspective. Langley Park is a long way down the other side of the hill but it looks almost flat from the angle taken.
      Its a shame the college doesn’t look like that now. Its dilapidated to say the least.
