What amazes me is that this is a well trodden place and its been nearly a year since I've been there the first time and it still looks great.

Nice photos too btw :)

It's stayed almost totally intact since it was abandoned in 1995 which is an astonishing feat considering how well trodden it is in these circles, it really shows the respect for places like this over the water.

These little places continue to amaze me in the fact they're left untouched and forgotten, completely different mentality to the 'lets wreck it' attitude of the UK. Of course media coverage doesn't help. It's probably a good thing there's no history on the place, if it was well known it wouldn't look like that!

Excellent set mate.

Damn right, couldn't have put it better!

It also helps this place is in a tiny village in the middle of nowhere, with residents living opposite who, from personal experience and stories I've heard don't really mind photographers going in, but I bet if they heard any idiots milling around they'd be right on it!

Bloody nice shot this. Sad to say it doesn't look like this now, it's definitely starting to get trashed. One of my favourites from my first visit to Belgium in the summer and since my return the other day, well, lets say you can see the difference. Still worth going to though but the magic isn't quite the same. Fuck, I hope this doesn't go the way of Potters.

Me and Mr. Saint used it for the exact same purpose fella, though we dropped in early enough to get some shots in the last of the days light. Not a bad place for a kip even if I kept us up most of night with ghost stories. :D

Im afraid thats just not going to happen, if you ask on a public forum for an address you are really not helping yourself out mate!

So you joined today and expect locations handed out to you!i would have a read of the FAQ'S mate !

      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.

      First things first - this place is a death-trap. Simple as that. And it's quite likely to be worse now than it was when I went. But as I have a bit of an obsession about redundant old cinemas and theatres I left all common sense at the entrance.
       
      The building still shows signs of its grand past but sadly any possibility of saving it looks pretty slim, although a Trust has been set up to try to preserve it and bring it back into use.
       
      The four-storey building, designed by G. B. Rawcliffe, opened in 1894 as a music hall, before being converted to a cinema in 1938. It was last used as a bingo hall in 1995.

      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.
