  1. Very short explore, as the building was almost completely empty. I ended up with just a few close-ups/details... Used to be a building from the local Antwerp newspaper. It looked like they actually used to press/print the papers there as well, long time ago. Now all remained was a large, very empty machine hall and some offices and remains of the archive. I think the building has shortly been occupied by a local Bank, after the newspaper left. (Based on the 'Bank Antwerp' stickers, all over the place..) Not much more to tell, so on with the picas... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
  2. HFC - Belgium - May 2016

    Quick report as I don't have any historical info. Fun explore, although got cut a bit short, after being caught, so I need to go back one day to finish it... Secca was really nice. He offered me some coffee and cola, while waiting for the police. Police was less amused and they didn't wanna believe I was there, on my own, just taking pics. Ended up being searched, then my bag + car and finally by the policeman destroying my memory card with his pocket knife, handing the remains to the security guard. Luckily I was shooting on 2 cards simultaneously and I managed to hide 1 of the cards while waiting for police... Having a backup sometimes makes sense. Now, on with the shots; 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 Cheers for looking!

  4. Belgium Eric's Engine Room

    Just a small little engine room. Don't know where it was used for. Didn't really feel comfortable overthere, so I missed a few little spots, but hey, there was a happy face #1 #2 #3 #4 #5

  6. A house full of old radios. These kind of locations are great to explore. Lots of photobooks and other personal belonings. Every time i walk through an abandoned house i'm still wary for the residents to return. Thanks for watching! Rody 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14.
  7. Maybe you remember about this villa (2013 - 2014) in Belgium. I'm pretty sure you saw pics with the "skeleton skull". (Source : http://www.spiritofdecay.com) Ok, so the place is pretty messy When we visited it. The neightborhood was very suspicious about urbexers. I barely knew the context of this house and the stories behind. To be honest, it was the most unpleasant visit ever. The facts : - He was a priest or something like that. - There is a lot of pictures of young boys everywhere on the floor (SFW : http://eluna-side.weebly.com/uploads/1/0/5/7/10571795/8974664_orig.jpg) - There is a loooot of toys. PICTURE BY ELUNA-SIDE - The people say that the priest was friend with some "famous" pedophiles in Belgium. Testimonials : "I'm used to write a text that summarizes a bit the situation of my photos. Here for once I'll make an exception. There is a lot to say with what we saw on this place (not photographed) and to discuss, but out of respect for this occupant deceased in 2010 I can say nothing." http://eluna-side.weebly.com/haus-des-pfarrers-be.html "At the sight of the fully-fledged play areas, the many German writings, the pictures from all over the world (at the time of the visit there were about 500 ~ slides on site), the innumerable mattresses and the other, strange compositions Picture of this place. Was it a meeting place? A radically Catholic cult of sects? There is also some evidence, including the one or other slogans against Islam, or other world religions (as well as the war reserves of powdery potatoes). Just as surprising were the pictures of young men in short jeans pants, or even swimwear. Catholic priest in Belgium. Jupp. 10 Eur in the clichés... Rarely do I feel as uncomfortable as there." (Google traduction) - http://www.drull.net/?p=1618 So, someone has visited this place ? Or maybe you know the story behind that ? Maybe someone who speak german can help me with that ? Thanks for reading.
  8. Villa Spar is a modern architecture abandoned villa. Contemporary design and minimalist elements found here. Mix of wood, glass, stone and marble in a rather empty spot with an amazing swimming pool and an imposing living room ! The pictures are taken from two different visits, in the same year. One of my favorite places ever !! For now, the place is destructed.
  9. A former tunnel for small boats, situated in the woods, along a canal, abandoned for many years. I've visited this secluded place six years ago. Some time later, the entrance has been closed. Even inside of the water a grid was installed. I don't know whether the tunnel is accessible again now or the tunnel portal on the other side is still open. I was there never again. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
  10. Diving back into the backlog again I remembered this gorgeous powerstation I visited on a euro trip with @Vulex, @TheVampiricSquid and @Redhunter It was the last stop on the trip, and for me, definitely made up for an otherwise disappointing day, but unfortunately we did have to rush to get back to dover in time Central Ohm was built in the early 20th century, to power the iron works, which was one of the largest in belgium. This is now the oldest remaining building of the site, and has been restored, to be used most recently as an events hall. And some photos As always, thanks for looking
  11. Our first location of the day and our first fully furnished farm/house. What a strange feeling. You know the house is abandoned but everything is still there as if they just left one day leaving everything behind. I couldn't find a lot about the background story of this farm. All I could find is that a brother and sister supposedly lived here and they either moved into a retirement home or they passed away. Thanks for watching! - Rody 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19.
  12. Wow what a beautiful mansion with a long complicated story. Unfortunately the weddingdress is gone once again, but that doesn't make this location less amazing. Thanks for watching! -Rody 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16.
  13. Always Look Up One of the last destinations on day one of my recent trip to Belgium, thank God. "Im too old for this shit!" (at only 28 hah!) Not eating properly and lack of sleep takes its tole, but euro trips are so worth it once you get home and remind your self of where you have been through the photos. And this place was one of the highlights. Its been stripped back of contents and only a few rooms are worth looking at. But the few that are are absolutely stunning. History Competing for the erection of the assembly house La Redoute, the first modern casino on the European continent (1763), the Spa Waux hall1 opened in 1770 despite the exclusive award given to the first by the prince-bishop . This controversy gave birth to the "case of Spa games" that will be born an agreement between the first two houses of assembly. These meeting rooms Spa will participate in the consecration as Café de l'Europe in 1781. It will be built in 1785 a third competitor home, Levoz lounge. The opening of Levoz lounge is an offense under the regulation of games. This "affair Spa games" will be one of the causes of the Liège Revolution 17892. During his second stay in Spa (1787), it seems that de Genlis particularly enjoyed the new meeting house, the Waux hall, away from the center of Spa, in a pastoral setting, more than home games that preceded it, Redoubt, on the initiative of the Magistrate in the heart of the city. The Spa Waux hall is the work of architect Jacques Barthelemy Renoz, the stucco Antoine-Pierre and Franck Henri Deprez painter. It is the rare architectural witness to one of the oldest theaters of Europe games. La Redoute has suffered several fires and the current Casino Spa, rebuilt in place, unfortunately includes most original pieces of 1763. In 1999, the Waux hall is on the protection list of the Walloon Heritage Institute. An external restoration work began on 15 March 2006 for a period of one year. 1 July 2005 has established the European Business Club in the Liège region, Waux club hall, which has scheduled its implantation in the Waux renovated lobby.

  14. Belgium Usine S - May 2016

    After a successful first day exploring some of the delights of eastern Belgium we eventually found the car park which was close to our hotel for the night, got our stuff and headed for the hotel only to find we’d walked the wrong way for 10 mins. I also noticed we’d walked straight past the entrance to Pritzer Fac. As we had all our stuff with us and it was a really busy street we decided to head back the way we came and actually find the place we were staying at. Having zonked out for about 6 hours we awoke to one of the group’s somewhat bizarre alarm tune of Bonnie Tyler’s I Need a Hero. Thankfully no early morning rendition by the phone’s owner. We set off and once outside we immediately saw the entry point and decided to park up the road, out of sight, just in case anyone was going to do the rounds. After a bit of shimmying here and there we got ourselves in for what ended up being about five hours of exploring visiting and re-visiting the various parts of the site. We decided to try and do as much of this place as was possible and drop some other locations we’d planned for later in the day so this is just a small selection of the shots I managed to get. We didn’t see anyone else on site for the entire time we were there but towards the end we heard a gate opening and a car engine, and given we had skipped breakfast and were flagging a bit, we decided to call it quits and head for the delicacies of the nearest Maccy D’s. As we drove past the proper entrance to the site we saw what we think was the caretaker’s car, which must have been the gate and car sounds we’d heard a little earlier. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. This had been the room I was really after having seen pictures of this place from previous reports: 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19.
  15. A nice little derp in the Belgian countryside, this one. Not a place I know much about other than its in a small village with some pretty nosy neighbours which made getting in a bit tricky. There weren't many clues to the previous occupants but I can only assume that much like the other farmhouses that pop up from time to time the owner has either passed away or been taken into care and the place has been left to rot away. Anyway it made for a nice little wonder for an hour or so... Thanks for looking
  16. The first location on day 2, the beautiful and forgotten university of Pritzer Fac. Unfortunately the stunning admin block was sealed no matter how hard we looked. I would come back here in a heart beat, but a little later in the day for the light.
  17. Hello guys and girls, We have been inactive for a while due to work and other stuff, but we had a trip to Belgium last week. Finally! We had a visit at Chateau Miranda/Noisy, you can see the footage here. Please let us know what you think of it! Thanks for watching:D
  18. The morning after a heavy night out in Antwerp when Belgium beat Hungary 4-0 wasn't a pretty site, and it certainly wasn't a time to do anything too serious. So, after rolling out of bed at just gone lunchtime we decided to do this - local, easy, and one that I was pleasantly surprised by. Despite being an older location it's still in relatively good shape - the decay is lovely and the features left behind make for a nice explore. Spent a couple of hours here, before a mad dash back to Calais via a wine warehouse to stock up As always, thanks for looking!
  19. My first post on this forum is of a very known location. Really loved the cars, but not much information can be found about the location. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
  20. Belgium Usine S, Belgium - June 2016

    After a successful morning at Lycee V we headed over to Usine S - my arch nemesis of derps. Somehow, i'd failed this place 3 times but oh boy was that about to change! The weather wasn't looking too great - it'd just started to rain, but I guess that somewhat helped covering our noise. I can't explain how happy I was to get in - I'd finally conquered the place that had eluded me so many times. What a beauty she is inside - definitely worth the wait. As always, thanks for looking!
  21. I'd planned to go and stay with a couple of Belgian friends for a long weekend, and when she asked me what I wanted to explore - this had to be one of them! After food, beers and nowhere near enough sleep we set off for this place - excited was an understatement. We arrived early doors - although people were already up and milling about, so we had to pick our moment well. Before long the 3 of us were inside, and as we walked round the corner to reveal this beauty I was a little taken back. Somewhere I'd wanted to do for so long, and I'd finally made it! Before long we were onto the next derp, usine s - and boy that didn't disappoint As always, thanks for looking!
  22. Belgium Henry's Powerplant (05/2016)

    a really cool powerplant, no decay but still really nice
  23. Belgium Ghost town: Doel, Drone footage.

    Hey guys and girls, We got ourselfs a drone and this is the first footage we shot. Doel is a small village in north-east Belgium, next to Antwerp. Since the anouncement of expanding the port of Antwerp, wich eventually would make the village disapear, many of the inhabitants left the village. On December 31, 2007 there were still 359 people in Doel, on December 31, 2010 only 188 and in 2013 barely 28, and by now it is completly abandoned. hope you guys like it, and thanks for watching!
  24. 3 times is a charm!! Finally could leave my footprints in this beautiful university. A big part has been really trashed and decayed but the main admin building is still in great shape. Hope you will enjoy my pictures! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17.
  25. Belgium Abandoned Mine

    A few shots made in an abandoned mine , the first part of the mine was partially collapsed It was dangerous, but never the less we continued exploring it , untill we came in a tunnel which was partially floaded, I really need to return with special clothing and go through the water , maybe also take my waterproof bag with me for the camera :) The last picture is my girlfriend who goes everywhere with me, we explore together and with friends offcourse, only 3 pics, the place wasn't big (i think) I couldn't visit a part of it , beacause of the part that's under water Abandoned mine by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Abandoned mine by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Abandoned mine by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr
