Hey guys and girls,

We got ourselfs a drone and this is the first footage we shot.

Doel is a small village in north-east Belgium, next to Antwerp.
Since the anouncement of expanding the port of Antwerp,
wich eventually would make the village disapear, many of the inhabitants left the village.

On December 31, 2007 there were still 359 people in Doel, on December 31, 2010 only 188 and in 2013 barely 28, and by now it is completly abandoned.

hope you guys like it, and thanks for watching!

Nicely made video that :)  

Would be cool to see inside some of those buildings, especially the church :)  

I'll move this across to video reports (y)

The church is one of the few buildings to give up it's life and accept the inevitable.

Spent a few hours here and how well you have done to show another prospective.    Cant remember seeing the wooden totem pole not alone the angle.

Done really well there.   Thanks.

Really nicely done video, it would have been nice to see what was inside some of the buildings though.  :)

Most if not all of the ones I saw were pretty well sealed up. Looking inside revealed that they were stripped to the brickwork.
