Belgium Return of the King... June '15

Recommended Posts

I wasnt expecting any of that after seeing the fist couple of pics, but there is still some nice features here and you can grasp what a grand staircase that once was too. What a shameful waste of a beautiful building. The shaft is cool too! :thumb

Looking at the outside I'm amazed there's any floors above ground level but there's some nice bits left in there, nice shots as always :thumb

Very nice set. I was there twice in the last five years and I really liked the place.

Difficult to find any information about it. On the web only few information about the castle can be found - and these are also contradictory. On one website I read that it was supposedly built in the 17th century as a summer residence on the ruins of a castle from the 14th century; and the building was expanded around 1870 and also modernized later.

Another source reported that the castle was built in 1912 by a German family with eight children. After the sale in the 60s it was allegedly used until 1990 for staff accommodation.

I was there last summer and had a decent mooch around got some shots of the interior and then heard the owner who lives in the other house near by come round in his van so we legged it before I could get any external shots. Did you get any shots of the bizarre artwork on the road to this place? The red chairs somehow constructed around a load of trees.

      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.
