Belgium Mon G - July 2013

Recommended Posts

First report of mine from the July 2013 Belgium tour with Scattergun, Stussy and Lost

Superb time had and i`m sure lots of funny stories to be shared, like my mighty french pug`s heating being stuck in full during a belting heatwave, with the record temp in the car hitting 41 !!!

This was the first destination after having been a little bit messy the night before on the Newcastle - Amsterdam ferry.............. what else is there to do !!!

In the blind panic of being late and needing to be at another site we only had 1hr to do this beast, so 1 day I really want to back and get some of my angles right :)

on with the pics

Got a few of mine online, so just adding em onto here to try not spam the forum up with Belgium Derps!

Was our first explore arriving on foreign soil, I happier wandering the long corridors than in the chapel where everyone was trying to get shots. Great start to the trip, even though Scattergun and myself were lucky to be alive after fearing instant death on the Ferry having been sat in the back seat of the car whilst the car rolled forward into impending doom, some numpty forgot the apply the handbrake fully and engage a gear. Won't mention names for that, you know who you are!!!

      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.

      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 ...
