Belgium The Horror Labs - November 2013

Recommended Posts

Once a successful veterinary school, the buildings known as the Horror Labs now lie abandoned, since the closure of the establishment in 1991.

This impressive site is a set of 19 distinct houses, pleasantly separated by courts and gardens.

All the façades are Neo-Renaissance Flemish style.

The buildings date from early 1900's and are now listed as a historical monument.

The main building is known for its grand lecture theatres, beautiful marble corridors and a basement filled with twisted treasures.

Visited with The Baron of Scotland, Proj3ct M4yh3m and Mr Dystopia, on the last day of the S.O.C.C's Franco-Belgian Tour of 2013.

Love how the mood changes from light and beautiful corridor shot and lecture theatre to ... well ... the specimens that lurk somewhere. Great lighting, I imagine it's not easy.

These Euro tours look so amazing, a different world to the one I sometimes inhabit.

      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
