Belgium Pritzer Fac, Belgium, July 16

Recommended Posts

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.

Hate to say it but I prefer this decayed stuff to the very clean (but admittedly beautiful) admin block, it's nice to see more of it that isn't often photographed.

I totally see your point. I like both, time capsule style and decaying / nature reclaiming. 

It would of been a nice contrast, but you loose some and win some :)

Nice set of photos. I need to return here, as a heavy night drinking the night before (Liege has a great night life, who knew!) meant I wasn't feeling this when we went and really didn't take that many photos.

My bout of food poisoning started here. I really didnt take many photos this day at all.

Nice set mate. Shame about the admin block, did you try getting there from the service tunnel?

 

:comp: 

Nope :(  found the window on the roof, but it was boarded and bolted and one of our group who'd been before spent our trip there looking for an alternative route.

Beautiful pictures and a great location! I've stood before this building a couple of times but didn't manage to figure out how to get it. Maybe we were making it to hard for ourselfs. Definitely on my to do list of locations.

      Little house somewhere in Belgium. Seems there lived an 103 year old lady and after a fire on the upper floor she left the house. Her son still comes there every week to feed the cat.

      Hello all! Time for my second post here.. This time something different again then my previous one.
      Last Sunday a friend and i had no clue what to do.. So we've left somewhat late in the morning to this "little-big" slatemine, that i still had to visit..
      It used to be a bigger mine back in the days , but due to flooded levels and collapses that happend during the years, only a small bit of it is still explorable.
      Complete darkness once you've turned off the flashlight, and only the noise of water falling on the floor.
      Still some equipment was left inside this mine... i wonder what the flooded levels have left.. It looks like their have been divers in there before..
      Spend 3hours and a half inside of the mine.. Once outside we where back in the snow ! Was actually way warmer inside of it then outside
      Was a bit difficult lighting out all the pictures, but the end result is good afterall
       
      Anyway one great piece of history!

      Recently, I´ve visited "Mold House". Of course, more than well-known. When I first set my eyes on pictures of that house with its amazing colours and its state of decay, I instantly fell in love. I´m glad I could fulfill my dream of visiting that place. I especially loved the pink colour of the armchairs being sokaed into the carpet.

      The Godarville tunnel was a boatunnel and has a length of 1050 meters. 
       
      In order to overcome the enormous differences in height on the Charleroi-Brussels canal, many locks were built in the Samme valley between Ronquières and Seneffe and a 1267 m long tunnel was built :  La Bête tunnel.
      Soon there was a need for a canal with a larger capacity and between 1854 and 1857 the canal was enlarged for vessels up to 350 tons.
      The old tunnel, however, formed a bottleneck and so it was replaced by the new tunnel of Godarville. As a result, the number of locks was limited to 30. After the Second World War it was decided to make the canal navigable for ships up to 1350 tons.
      Since neither the Samme nor the tunnel of Godarville could make this enlargement, a new route had to be built between Ronquières and Godarville. . The tunnel is closed with large metal gates on both sides to keep the cold  out during the winter. On the south side, in the tunnel next to the canal, there is a towpath on which the horses towed the boats.
      Dimensions
      length: 1050 m
      width: 8 m
      maximum ship width: 5 m
      maximum draft: 2.1 m
