It's very rare that I get to christen a location on a forum, and even rarer when that location happens to come from Belgium.

There is quite a story with me and this spot, I first 'found' it over two years ago while I was searching for locations for my first ever trip to Belgium but as the blog I found it on (and I'll be buggered if I can remember the name of it) was years out of date and the location was named, and I'd never seen it on any Belgian forum I assumed it was long gone, but it went on my map anyway. Over the next couple of years I went to Belgium a few times but this was always too far out the way to realistically consider an explore opportunity and it left my mind. All that changed a few weeks ago though when out of nowhere I saw a video someone posted on the OS Facebook page of the location! Some frantic question asking was done as to whether it was recent or not (it was) and suddenly, with the route we were planning on taking through Belgium this time it was very much doable!

So, I bring you a stripped out house with an awesome surprise in the barn.....Maison Rover (so christened by me).

      And old 18 century house with had a bank function.The building is stripped of all furniture an will probably be renovated in some future.
      Needed to be a little bit inventive to gain access to this one. But later I was all alone, with the only sound coming from the people in front of the building.

      Some pics from this once excellent, now demolished morgue that was part of the Harold Wood Hospital in Essex.
      Not too many locations like this in the UK at present, few and far between!
      Visited in July 2011.

      This place is been on my to do list since i first saw photos of it some years back , in my mind no photo or video footage can do it any kind of justice ,you have to see with your own eyes to take in the vastness and extreme detail of the 400 year old building....Gaining access was no joke at midnight recce to check access was a must then park up just outside the city for a few hours sleep in the car or shall i say try to sleep with the Critical NOISE Machine aka Critical Mass Snorer ..........Ok skip forward to 5am checking out the city streets looking for any sign of activity ....all clear so we made out move and gained entry made our way to the main floor and sat it out till day break ....i looked for history online but wasnt able to find any but Fritz managed to get me some from a Dutch site the translation isnt 100% so bare with it .....1.
