Pensionnat Catholique, France

Pensionnat Catholique, France Visited with: PG UE and Scott. Visit date: November 2014 Please Note: Entry is always through an open access point and not by forcing our way in….. We are explorers, not vandals. History Pensionnat Catholique was a boarding school which now sits derelict in France. I cannot find much history on the school at this time other than the school was built in 1937 and the Chapel was completed in 1939. During WW2 the school was occupied by the German army, however, later in the war the American army took control of the site and gave it back to the city. After [...]

We knew before heading here that the building was in a bad way and tha[...]

Chateau De Singes, France

Chateau De Singes aka Castle of Monkeys Visited with: PG UE, Carl Hartley, Nick Whitworth & Scott Chadwick. Visit Date: September 2014 History Château De Singes was built in the 17th century in a very quite rural area of France. There are a few stories about the history of this place but how solid or true they are I am unsure. One of the main stories of this Château was that the last known owner was an elderly gentleman who was known to be a little recluse and very hard to deal with. One account of this behaviour was when a fire broke out at the Château. Smoke could be seen from t[...]
