Belgium Ghost town: Doel, Drone footage.

Recommended Posts

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!

Nicely made video that :) 

 

Would be cool to see inside some of those buildings, especially the church :) 

 

I'll move this across to video reports :thumb

The church is one of the few buildings to give up it's life and accept the inevitable.

 

Spent a few hours here and how well you have done to show another prospective.    Cant remember seeing the wooden totem pole not alone the angle.

 

Done really well there.   Thanks.

Really nicely done video, it would have been nice to see what was inside some of the buildings though. :)

Most if not all of the ones I saw were pretty well sealed up. Looking inside revealed that they were stripped to the brickwork.

      This was an odd explore, from the front of the building it looked like a standard office block but the inside told a different story.
      First off, some fairly standard looking CNC machines - but the further in we ventured the clearer it became. There was an entire production line left in situ for making alloy wheels!
      Each stage of the build process had its own machining area and the wheels were transported from one area to the next on a huge conveyor system - everything from milling, shot blasting, heat treatment, lacquering and pressure testing. Many of the machines had lot numbers attached and it was my guess that it wouldn't be long before everything including an immaculate rack of machine tools were auctioned off.
      We gradually made our way to the front of the building, where the only notable room was a small laboratory - still half equipped. An enjoyable explore and a good end to the day.
      Visited with Jaff Fox and thanks to H for his info.














      This sign, roughly translated means: food and drink are strictly prohibited in the lacquer plant.




      Mr. B!

      After trying to see as much of Belgium as we could in four days, we all decided that im power station would be high on the list . The size of this place is immense and i found myself putting my tripod down wondering round and absorbing as much of the place as possible ive been back twice to this site and shots are from all three trips my apologies for not being able to find any history ...
      on with the pics ...
