  1. A completely ruined chateau in the Belgium countryside... But what a ruin! Worth a visit just for the glass elevator shaft... A bit of a trapse through the woods and we get the first glimpse... Thanks for lookin' in...
  2. Morning all, Only a handful of photos from here. I visited back in November when the place was waterlogged, raining and it was pouring in through the roof. It seems that they have had a clean up lately. After arriving on Eurostar and hitting the first location which was Villa Das, we were only a few miles away and as my two mates had never been to Belgium to do some exploring before, we headed here for half an hour. Some guys turned up midflow and were searching the place with metal detectors for coins. The weather was mostly 30 degrees everyday and was not the best weather for exploring. My original set was here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/timster1973/sets/72157631944056556/ My few photos on the revisit below. Will try and post more locations from most recent trip once I've processed them. Tim Thats all folks!

  4. Christmas has been a bit quiet for me splore wise and I was clucking for a couple of hours out. So it was a quick visit to a couple of local splores __________________________________ POW CAMP 116 - MILL LANE - HATFIELD HEATH Prisoner of War Camp 116 was set up in 1941 to house Italian prisoners of war, and from 1943-1944 it mainly held German and Austrian prisoners. The POW's were allowed out to work on the nearby farms and one local has this memory of it...... "The Austrian and German prisoners of war were kept in a camp at Hatfield Heath and sent out daily to 'help on the land'. Our first batch were Austrian and they were hard workers and Mum was so sorry for them she looked at their ration for the day and promptly invited them to share our food - they even ate with us. The next lot were German and all but one of those were also polite, hard workers and they too shared our food and ate in the kitchen with us. My biggest impression was the way they stood whenever Mum got up and would never sit until she too sat down. Dad corresponded for some time with one of them, a Walter Scheile from Beilefeld in Germany." The English Heritage Document entitled "PRISONER OF WAR CAMPS (1939 – 1948)" has this to say about it Camp 116 (Mill Lane Camp, Hatfield Heath) conforms to the so-called ‘Standard’ layout, with the guards’ compound consisting of MoWP huts, while the living huts are all timber Laing huts.
  5. Firstly, I am sooooo sorry to have to bore you with another Sevs report, but I love the place. It's all sort of corridor, peely paint, damp crotch, derelict porn!!!! So here it it.......... Another epic day out with Skeleton Key, Mimi, Trog and Peaches _____________________________________________ The History Severalls Hospital was the second Essex County Asylum - opening in 1913 to relieve pressure from the Warley Asylum. Designed by F.Whithouse & W.H.Town, the site was continually added to between 1910 and 1935, and this is reflected in the different styles present. The asylum was situated on 300 acres of the Severalls estate, which was sold to the Essex County Council in 1904 and its doors were opened to patients in 1913; at its peak it housed over 2000 patients, both in main wards and the outlaying villas. Interestingly the chimney attached to the water tower was lowered by one third of its height during World War Two to prevent it being a hazard to crippled bombers landing at a nearby US airbase
  6. I had visited this site a week earlier but was thwarted in our attempt to do the roof by a persistent sec in a white van viewtopic.php?t=1877&f=9 So it was a revisit, this time there were four of us, Myself, Skeleton Key, UrbanX and Mad Axe, a great explore rounded off with a nice pint!!! It's always nice being on the other side of the cameras The rooftop plant rooms Building 2
  7. After a very successful previous visit it was decided to return to these beautiful old loco sheds and test out some of photographic skills some of you guys had passed onto us. As well as me and my exploring partner in crime Trench, we were also accompanied by KUE members The Daddy and new guy kenwilson. Once again thanks to Network Rail for letting us enter these old buildings. I personally can’t get enough of these sheds and had to be dragged away by the team so as we could get home An old Train Coupler (I Think) Im very happy with the following pics The Team shot I really enjoyed returning to these sheds. And it was brilliant to be able to be in them as it got darker. Thanks to Trench, The Daddy and kenwilson for coming along for the ride
